Hello, I'm a lecturer at the Computational Linguistics Research Group. This group is a part of the Research Institute of Information and Language Processing (RIILP). The research institute is a part of the University of Wolverhampton. I represent RIILP at meetings of the unversity's Ethics Sub-Committee.

I currently research automatic sentence simplification to reduce the propositional density of input text. I hope that progress in this area will improve text accessibility for humans and improve the reliability of text processing by machines. I envisage text processing by machines to include machine translation, information extraction, summarisation, and syntactic parsing. Automatic sentence simplification for text processing was my PhD topic. I have applied it to information extraction from clinical texts and to improve the accessibility of texts for people with autism.

In the past, I have worked on several topics in the field of natural language processing, including anaphora resolution, pronoun classification, named entity recognition, and information extraction.
