I have been working full-time at DSV for a month now and would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself on the Syslab blog. I’m currently working on adapting the Web Mining course to a more distance-friendly form. I will also be involved in the research work of the “IT for Health” team, performing natural language processing on patient health records.
I have a BSc in computer science from RMIT in Melbourne, Australia and I just recently completed my Master’s degree from KTH and the EMIS program. In my thesis I explored the possibility of applying the automatic classification methods (corpus annotation and machine learning) used in the biomedical and clinical domain to that of knowledge management. More specifically, I wanted to find out whether it is possible to assess automatically the level of certainty in knowledge-intensive documents. Together with my supervisor, Sumithra Velupillai, the thesis was turned into a paper that was published and presented at a workshop (Negation and Speculation in Natural Language Processing) in Uppsala in July.
I look forward to getting to know you all more in the coming months!
