Hi, my name is Phillip Smith, and I am a research student in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham, under the supervision of Dr. Mark Lee.

Research Interests

I am interested in natural language processing, in particular, sentiment analysis. I'm looking into how discourse function effects supervised machine learning classifiers trained to tackle this problem.

Teaching Duties

In addition to my research, I was a senior teaching associate, lecturing for MSc Fundamentals: Introduction to Computer Science, and for the second year BSc Software System Components and first year Language & Logic modules.

While writing up my PhD, I was an assistant lecturer in the Faculty of Engineering and Computing at Coventry University.
