I am a second year PhD student in the School of Computing Science at the University of Glasgow, supervised by Joemon Jose. I am a member of the Information Retrieval group, where my main focus is on detecting and summarizing event using social media.
I’m also an amateur photographer, and probably spent more time than I should lusting over lenses. Some of my favourite photographs can be found on my flickr account.
