I am a research postgraduate working with Prof. Neil Ferguson, Dr. Jose Camacho Collados, and Dr. Xingyi Song. I am interested in the intersection of Natural Language Processing and Public Health. In line with this interest, the focus of my PhD is to investigate how Twitter data can be used to quantify adherence to protective behaviours over the COVID-19 pandemic.
