Dr. Phillip Smith


I am a lecturer and careers tutor in the School of Computer Science at the University of Birmingham.

Research Interests

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

I have an Erdős number of 4.


In the Spring of 2019 I will be teaching Artificial Intelligence and Operating Systems and Networks. In the Autumn of 2018, I taught Professional Computing.
