I am doing a PhD in natural language processing at the School of Computer Science, University of Manchester.

My project focuses on topic-centric sentiment analysis of parliamentary debates, and my supervisor is Riza Batista-Navarro.

In the past, I've worked on sarcasm detection in social media, and rule-based machine translation.
