Research

My research revolves around various text mining and information extraction techniques. I extract information from short, unstructured, and informal text, such as microblogs during mass emergency events.  

Here is my PhD thesis in three minutes: Information extraction from Twitter during natural disasters
First place at the Three Minute Thesis Competition (3MT) in Sep, 2018 organised by Graduate Campus, UZH.
