Biography

I am Senior Lecturer at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG), vice-director of the Insight Centre for Data Analytics at NUIG and head of the Insight Unit for Natural Language Processing (http://nlp.insight-centre.org/). My main research interests are in the development and use of Natural Language Processing methods and solutions for semantic-based information access. I have been involved in a large number of national and international funded projects in this area. In recent years we developed the Saffron framework for knowledge extraction, which has been used in industry applications with Irish Times, Kennys and HP. Another line of recent research is on the definition and implementation of lemon, a vocabulary for Linguistic Linked Data, which was developed in the context of the EU funded project Monnet and is currently being applied in EU projects such as LIDER , EuroSentiment and MixedEmotions.
