p_chenghuaI am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Natural Language Processing in the Computer Science Department of the University of Sheffield. Prior to joining Sheffield, I was a SICSA Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computing Science, University of Aberdeen. My research is centred around machine learning, natural language processing, data and text mining.  Currently, I am particularly interested in the development of algorithms and models for sentiment analysis, text summarisation, natural language generation, and cognitive inspired context learning. For more info, please visit my group page.
