About Felipe

I received my PhD degree from the University of Waikato.  Previously, I received two engineering degrees in the fields of computer science and industrial engineering, and a masters degree in computer science, all from the University of Chile. I worked for three years as a research engineer at Yahoo! Labs Latin America.

Research Interests

My research interests and expertise lie in the acquisition of knowledge and information from unstructured data, particularly natural language text, spanning the overlapping fields of natural language processing (NLP), data mining (DM), machine learning (ML), information retrieval (IR), and social media analysis (SMA). My main research goals are to study society by computationally analysing traces left by humans in the digital space.
