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.
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.
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.
