Dr Lina Petrakieva

Academic Development Tutor, Learning Development Centre
My research interests were initially concentrated on computational linguistics which I was first introduced to at age 15. Then after graduating with my MSc. in IT and being continuously involved in research in computational linguistics, information retrieval, parsing and disambiguation, I moved on to do a PhD. in Machine Learning. All of these areas revolve around the vision of how one day people will be able to use natural language and intuitive interfaces to achieve better human-computer interaction and I have been looking at how the change in technology changes the ways humans work with it, especially in education.
