Research overview

My core research interest is in the area of Social Computing where I examine how users engage with the social web and social media, and how such engagement changes over time and the factors that are linked with such changes. To facilitate my research I examine the following topics:

  • Automated prediction methods based on machine learning (i.e. objective optimisation techniques)
  • Data mining using statistical models and scalable pattern recognition techniques
  • The semantic web and linked data, including user and community representation paradigms
  • Identity disambiguation and coreference resolution
