✓ Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) — email supervisor to discuss availability.
I am a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Computer Science Education Research Group. My research focuses on better understanding the latent discourse aspects in large corpora of natural language text, and using this understanding to build computational models that can improve human learning process and address other social concerns such as cyberbullying. My research interests lie in the areas of text mining, natural language processing, discourse processing, and educational technology.
