After obtaining my MSc from the University of Birmingham, I have been working as a researcher in the areas of text mining and Semantic Web in the Department of Computer Science, the University of Sheffield. My earlier research looked at text mining and Semantic Web technologies within domain-specific context, such as archaeology, aerospace engineering, automobile and consumer electronics. Since 2012 I have been focusing on text mining on the Web, particularly methods for automatically creating and linking structured knowledge bases, and information extraction from the social media resources. During my post as researcher, I also obtained my PhD degree as a part-time staff candidate. Between late 2016 and 2017, I worked as a lecturer in Computer Science at the Computing and Technology Department, Nottingham Trent University.

I joined the Information School as a lecturer in January, 2018.
