Arkaitz Zubiaga

I'm a lecturer (assistant professor) at Queen Mary University of London. My research revolves around Human Factors in Natural Language Processing, interdisciplinary research bridging NLP and Social Computing. I'm particularly interested in linking online data with events in the real world, among others for 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 and other forms of online harm.

I currently have a funded PhD studentship focusing on detection and mitigation of online harms. Check out the advert for info and how to apply. The deadline is 8th September.

I'm a member of the editorial boards of the Information Processing & Management and Online Social Networks and Media journals, and a regular reviewer for top conferences including WWW, CHI, CSCW, ACL, EMNLP, IJCAI and AAAI.
