I am Danushka Bollegala, Professor at the Department of Computer Science, The University of Liverpool, United Kingdom. Before joining UoL, I was a lecturer at the School of Information Sciences at the University of Tokyo, Japan (2010-2013). I am also an Amazon Scholar.
I lead the Data Mining and Machine Learning (DMML) Research Group and the Natural Language Processing Group.
My research interests are Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning. I am particularly interested in how the meaning of words and sentences used by humans can be represented in a format that could be understood by machines such as computers or robots.
