Research Interests

My research deals with the analysis of spontaneous language samples. I work with written language mostly, but some of my work also deals with transcriptions of spoken language. My main research projects can be categorized along these lines:

  • Forensic linguistics, including authorship attribution, profiling and plagiarism detection
  • Computational Linguistics for the analysis of Code-Switched data
  • Health informatics (information extraction from patient generated data)
  • Clinical NLP, the use of NLP in language assessment for a clinical purpose (diagnose, monitor conditions affecting language patterns)

Adrián Pastor López-Monroy

Research Associate

Dr. López-Monroy obtained his MSc and PhD in Computational Sciences at the National Institute of Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (INAOE), Mexico. His research focuses on, but not limited to, the intersection of the fields of Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Computer Vision (CV). In his research he exploits image analysis and text mining algorithms to design novel methods in “Language & Vision” tasks.
