Research in Linguistics: Computational Linguistics




Alexopoulou, Dr Dora

Dr Alexopoulou works on linguistic theory and language learning with a focus on second language acquisition. She is interested in exploiting big data from online language learning for developing models combining linguistic and computational approaches.


Collier, Dr Nigel

Nigel Collier's research interests bring together computational techniques such as machine learning, syntactic parsing and concept understanding with the aim of providing a machine-understandable semantic representation of text, e.g. on the World Wide Web. This is used to support real-world tasks that require machine intelligence, e.g. question answering and knowledge discovery.


Korhonen, Dr Anna

Anna Korhonen works on computational linguistics, natural language processing and language technology. Her research interests include the development of computational models for automatic processing of texts at the level of lexicon, semantics, syntax and discourse, and application of such models to support real-life applications (such as text mining and machine translation) in biomedical and cognitive sciences.
