I now work for Bloomberg. I am no longer taking on any new PhD students.
I used to be a Reader in Informatics, Edinburgh. My research interests included Social Media, Machine Translation, Machine Learning and large-scale processing of data (streaming algorithms, randomisation, Hadoop etc).
I do not take on undergraduate interns, sorry.
