Dr Hugo Sanjurjo González

BA MA PhD (University of León, Spain)

Research Fellow

Biography

Dr Hugo Sanjurjo-González joined the University in 2018 as a Research Fellow on the project Hansard at Huddersfield.

He completed his PhD. in Computer Science at the University of León (Spain) in 2017. His thesis focused on the development of software for corpus analysis that allows users to create their own multilingual annotated corpora without assistance from technical staff. It was centred on the automation of complex processes, such as aligning, tagging or indexing, employing existing software together with additional custom-built software. This thesis was awarded a cum laude distinction.

Research and Scholarship

Hugo’s research interests have a strong interdisciplinary character, involving aspects of Natural Language Processing, Corpus Linguistics and Computational Linguistics. His previous research experience focused on the creation of software to process multilingual corpora, creation of applications that make use of the knowledge derived from corpus-based studies carried out by linguists, corpus annotation and semantic disambiguation. His future research plans involve exploring Machine Learning approaches to creating more sophisticated software.
