I lead the Edinburgh Language Technology Group, a cross-college research group that specialises in research and development of natural language processing and text mining methods with applications in healthcare, medical history, population science and literary studies.

My Research

My research is on text mining for different domains and speech transcript analytics. I am also working on text mining methods for humanities and social science use cases and well as for electronic healthcare records.
