    Research Interests

    My main interests are in the areas of Text Mining, Neural Networks and Classification in general. I also like to push reluctant people towards doing research in NLP :)
    My Master's Thesis was on Sentiment Analysis in the domain of literature,  which is generally still my core research area: I'm trying to find new ways of analysing novels using computers.

    In my spare time, I like to read books (mostly everything written by Tolkien ;)1) and watch TV shows.
