Arkaitz Zubiaga

I am a senior lecturer (associate professor) at Queen Mary University of London, where I co-lead the Social Data Science lab and I'm the Director of Graduate Studies. I'm also a member of the Computational Linguistics Lab and a DERI Fellow.

My research revolves around Socially-Aware and Human-Centred Natural Language Processing, interdisciplinary research bridging Computational Social Science and Natural Language Processing. I'm broadly interested in furthering NLP methods for mining social media and online data, as well as in furthering our understanding of human behaviour through the study of social media. My recent research has a particular focus on tackling problematic issues on the Web and social media that can have a damaging effect on individuals or society at large, such as hate speech, misinformation, inequality, biases and other forms of online harm. Check out my research interests for more.

I have published 150+ papers, including 50+ journal articles. I serve as section editor-in-chief for 3 journals (PeerJ Computer Science, Frontiers in AI and Information), in the editorial boards of 4 journals (including IP&M and OSNEM) and I'm a regular (S)PC member for conferences in computational social science (WWW, ICWSM, CSCW, WebSci), natural language processing (ACL, EMNLP, COLING) and artificial intelligence (IJCAI, AAAI, WSDM).

I'm currently involved in the HYBRIDS MSCA Doctoral Network (PI) and the AP4L project (CI).
