Personal profile

Research interests

My main area of interest is argumentation and reasoning (both human and artificial), with a particular focus on the use of computational methods. This multi-disciplinary area of research touches on, among others, artificial intelligence and computer science, linguistics and philosophy of language, and cognitive psychology and logic. In my current research, as part of an EPSRC-/IBM-funded £1.1m UK project on Argument Mining, I work on the automated analysis of argumentative discourse. This has led to the first large-scale public deployment of argument mining technology: commissioned by the BBC, our software tools were distributed to 3,000 secondary educational institutions in the UK. Papers in the pipeline relate to, e.g., corpus annotation, argument schemes, rhetorical figures, and argument evaluation.
