Wolverhampton University Lecturers

Professor Ruslan Mitkov

EM TTI Co-coordinator, Professor in Computational Linguistics

Professor Ruslan Mitkov is the Director of the Research Institute for Information and Language Processing which consists of two internationally renowned research groups – Statistical Cybermetrics Research Group led by Prof. Mike Thelwall and the Research Group in Computational Linguistics. Professor Mitkov delivers a number of lectures for EM TTI and supervises dissertation topics related to his research interests.

Professor Mitkov has / is working on a variety of topics in Natural Language Processing and so far he has authored or co-authored more than 240 publications. He is still interested in (and involved in research on) anaphora resolution and the automatic generation of multiple-choice tests - topics for which he has been extensively cited. Recent topics which he has researched and published include translation memory, computational treatment of multiword expressions, sentiment analysis, language change, readability, simplification and NLP for people with language disabilities. Previous topics include but are not limited to automatic identification of cognates and false friends, machine translation, the use of NLP methodology and corpora to verify the validity of translation universals, bilingual term extraction, textual similarity, text summarisation, centering, question answering, temporal processing, CALL and annotation of corpora.
