Arkaitz Zubiaga

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

My research revolves around Social Data Science, interdisciplinary research bridging Computational Social Science and Natural Language Processing. 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, biases and other forms of online harm. Check out my research interests for more.

I have published 140+ papers (including 50+ journal articles), which have been cited 5,500+ times (H-index = 37). I serve in the editorial boards of 7 journals (including IP&M, OSNEM, PeerJ Computer Science) 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 research projects totalling over £5M, including the HYBRIDS MSCA Doctoral Network (PI) and the AP4L project (CI).
