Biography

Following my undergraduate studies in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, I completed a DPhil in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Sussex. I subsequently enjoyed a 20-year business career as a consultant, a venture capitalist, and a private equity partner before returning to the academic world in 2009. Since 2010, I have co-founded two AI research laboratories at the University of Sussex, the Centre for Analysis of Social Media at the think-tank Demos, and a R&D-focused consulting firm, CASM Consulting LLP.

Role

Co-founder of Text Analytics Laboratory (TAG Lab) with Prof David Weir and co-founder of Predictive Analytics Laboratory (PAL Lab) with Dr Novi Quadrianto. Current area of expertise is in the analysis and interpretation of language by machines. 

Community and Business

I work extensively with companies, NGOs and government, addressing practical problems using leading-edge AI techniques. This work is conducted through the TAG and PAL Laboratories at the University of Sussex, through the Centre for Analysis of Social Media at Demos, and through a consulting firm, CASM Consulting LLP.
