I am an aficionado of Natural Language Processing (NLP), with strong focus on Information Extraction, Finite-state Technology,
and the development of efficient Text Mining tools that REALLY WORK !
Information extraction: named-entity recognition and normalisation, name matching, event extraction, multilingual domain-adaptive information extraction
Finite-state technology: finite-state automata and transducers, finite-state based grammar formalisms, compression techniques, pattern matching
Open source intelligence: security-related online news surveillance and social media mining
Natural Language Engineering: general-purpose text processing architectures, shallow grammar formalisms, large-scale NLP
Other: knowledge discovery, information retrieval, question answering, information management and sharing
