Description

Course outline: This workshop aims to provide researchers with necessary knowledge and skills to communicate their research to the wider public. Researchers learn first-hand from an experienced journalist how to publish their research in newspapers to reach non-academic audiences. The workshop also familiarizes students with social media channels such as Twitter, which can serve as a tool for communicating research ideas and findings.

He holds a PhD in data mining and machine learning from Brunel University, London, and has worked for 2 years as a post-doctoral researcher at City University, London, before joining News UK. As a journalist, he contributed to international stories such as the Doping Scandal and the Tax Avoidance investigations. As a researcher, he has published several papers and presented at major machine learning conferences.
