Mohammed Hasanuzzaman, PhD (Informatics)


I am a Lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, Munster Technological University, Ireland. I am also a member of ADAPT Centre, Ireland's global centre of excellence for digital content and media innovation. My research interests and activities over the past 8 years have been in Natural Language Processing (NLP), especially Temporal Information Extraction, Machine Translation, Psycholinguistics, Social Media Analytics and Machine Learning applications to NLP. I have published more than 36 papers in a range of highly respected conferences including ACL, SIGIR, NAACL, COLING, EACL, CoNLL, ECIR, Hypertext, ECAI, ESWC and IJCNLP. I have also published papers in highly reputed journals such as Nature, PLOSOne, IEEE Intelligent Systems, IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing,and ACM Transactions on Knowledge Discovery from Data.

Prior to this, I earned my doctorate degree from the University of Caen Normandie, Caen, France. I was hosted at the GREYC Laboratory, a joint collaboration between the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Ingénieurs de Caen – ENSICAEN and University of Caen Normandie during my doctoral studies. In my doctoral studies, I introduced a temporal ontology namely TempoWordNet where word senses are associated with their intrinsic temporal dimensions: atemporal, past, present, and future. The developed resource was released publicly in March 2014. Till date, the resource is downloaded more than 10,000 times all over the world. TempoWordNet can be accessed from the open multilingual WordNets website (http://compling.hss.ntu.edu.sg/omw/), managed by Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. After finishing my PhD studies, I worked briefly for a social media analytics company based in Hong Kong as Natural Language Processing Researcher.

I am currently involved in several European projects as PI/Co-PI such as WARIFA, ITFLOWS, STEM In Action, and MOVES-Monitoring Virtual Crowds in Smart Cities.

I was awarded with PhD Scholarship from the French Ministry of Superior Education and Research, Govt. of France for my doctoral studies. In the year 2018, I received Erasmus+ staff mobility award for teaching and training. I have also received the Dublin City University INVENT Award for Engagement with Business/Industry for the year 2018. Currently, I am jointly supervising 3 PhD students. Till date, I have supervised more than 15 Master thesis.
