Arkaitz Zubiaga

I'm an assistant professor at the University of Warwick. My research revolves around Human Factors in Natural Language Processing, interdisciplinary research bridging NLP and Social Computing, where the analysis of text and conversations online is informed by how people interact with information as well as with one another. Examples include leveraging online data (social media, web, open data) to model, track and understand real world phenomena, and furthering approaches to mitigate the vulnerabilities of the Web and social media, such as hate speech, misinformation and inequality.

Research interests: natural language processing, social media mining, computer-supported cooperative work, computational social science, computational journalism.

Research: I've published over 80 peer-reviewed publications, including 25+ journal publications. My research has been cited over 1,300 times (H-index = 22). I'm an editorial board member of the IP&M journal and a regular reviewer for top conferences and journals in NLP (ACL, NAACL, EMNLP), HCI (CHI, CSCW, IUI) and web science (WWW, Hypertext, ICWSM, WebSci).

Teaching: Module organiser for CS918 Natural Language Processing (2017/18 and 2018/19) and module co-organiser for CS909 Data Mining (2017/18) at Warwick. I'm also teaching social media mining (in Spanish) as an external collaborator at UNED's online MSc course in Human Language Technologies.
