I am Research Scientist at IBM Research Ireland, working on Cognitive Computing and Natural Language Processing.

My research focuses on the use of Deep Learning techniques towards the analysis of multi-criteria decision making processes.

Prior to this work, as part of my PhD research, undertaken in Trinity Collage Dublin (Ireland) and entitled “Slicepedia: Open Corpus Slicing for Adaptive Web Systems'' focused upon investigating the use of NLP and Semantic Web algorithms to support the automated on-demand generation of personalised resources for Adaptive Web Platforms. Throughout the years, I have both patented and published extensively on these topics in top-tier NLP and Personalisation venues.

As a result of the technology produced as part of his PhD, I also successfully raised funds and co-founded an award winning Enterprise Ireland / SFI backed SaaS startup company called Linguabox, providing the on-demand delivery of adaptive Duolingo-like language eLearning resources to language learners.
