Fattane Zarrinkalam

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering at the University of Guelph (UoG). My general research interests lies in the intersection of Information Retrieval, Social Media Mining and Semantic technologies.

Before joining UoG, I was Research Scientist at Thomson Reuters Labs and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Laboratory for Systems, Software and Semantics (LS3) at Toronto Metropolitan University, where I worked on research and industrial projects related to Legal Tech and Semantic-enabled Social Media Analysis.

I am hiring a PhD student to work on Social Information Retrieval. Contact me if you are interested.
