A researcher with the Open University since 2009, my current research interest centres on information extraction, especially extracting implicit
information. Rather than just treating text as tokens, there are typographic cues to exploit, such as change in typeface or alignment, that conventional NLP techniques discard. I am also interested in how we record the results of this information extraction as metadata, or as semantic enhancement to a document, in an effective, accessible manner, while addressing complications due to conflicting user requirements across the disciplines that want to use the common text source.
