I am a postgraduate researcher at the University of Glasgow, studying information retrieval. My supervisors are Dr. Richard McCreadie and Dr. Jeff Dalton. My research involves developing multi-task learning algorithms for the extraction of event-centric information from text streams. Other interests include knowledge base completion, transfer learning, reinforcement learning, and distributed computing.
I am a member of the Glasgow Information Retrieval Group within the Information, Data and Analytics (IDA) section. I am currently involved in a project of identifying actionable information for disaster/emergency response scenarios and I am a regular participant in the TREC Incident Streams track.
I am currently a tutor in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, where I provide teaching assistance for the undergraduate course, CS1P - Introductory Programming in Python. I am also an organiser for Machine Learning in Science where we host regular talks and seminars on the development of machine learning and its use across different disciplines in science.
