I am a Senior Research Scientist at Thomson Reuters R&D. My focus is in computational linguistics, in particular systems for automatically extracting, aggregating and summarizing information.
I am currently working on crowdsourcing data for named entity recognition; hierarchical learning for domain adaptation and generalization; and bootstrapping relation and taxonomy extraction.
Previously, I developed approaches to named entity linking, natural language processing with social/collaborative media, and web-scale information extraction as part of the Computable News project. This was part of the financial text analytics programme at the Capital Markets Cooperative Research Centre. I was affiliated with Macquarie University's Centre for Language Technology and the University of Sydney's Schwa Lab.
My PhD (2008) is from the University of Edinburgh, where I also worked as a Research Associate from 2002-2004.
