Alongside my PhD, currently, I am also a part-time research assistant in the Department of Computer Science, the University of Sheffield (expected to end by the end of this year).
Title: Transfer learning and model bias on toxic comment classification tasks
My Ph.D. study is about applying transfer learning on toxic comment classification tasks. Additionally, my research looks into the bias of pre-trained language models when handling those tasks, particularly the bias towards identity terms.
