Personal profile

Research interests

I obtained a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Warwick. Before joining the SoM, I worked as a Research Associate in the Psychometrics Centre in the Judge Business School at University of Cambridge. I have been working in Computer Science, Psychology and Business School departments doing interdisciplinary research investigating the relationship between human factors and computational techniques. My work focuses on analysing and predicting behavioural and psychological traits (e.g., personality) of humans from their social network data (e.g., text, image, activities, etc), which can be applied to improve business practice in marketing and management.

Willing to supervise PhD

I welcome enquiries from potential PhD students who are interested in my work areas. More details about my research can be found in my personal website: external website
