Research interests: Her primary research area is Multimodal Sentiment Analysis (MSA). In her PhD research, she aims to investigate how multimodal data- text, audio, and visual can be exploited to aid the tasks of sentiment and emotion detection through the application of different Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques such as Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), and Natural Language Processing (NLP). A few foreseen applications are in marketing (product/service recommenders), healthcare (assisted living), education (adaptive learning), and virtual assistants. She is also interested in analysing sensor data from wearable devices for various sentiment analysis tasks such as understanding which factors trigger certain emotions.

Research projects: Combining Different Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Sentiment and Emotion Detection
