Dr Scott Piao

International Lecturer in Computer Science

Research Overview

My research interests span Natural Language Processing, Text Mining, Social Computing and Data Science. I am particularly interested in developing tools and systems for automatically analysing information hidden in langauge data and applying such techniques in various information systems.
