My Work

My research includes large-scale data analytics, cognitive science, machine learning, and natural language processing (NLP). I take an interdisciplinary approach to investigating linguistic and visual data, combining NLP and machine learning methodologies with information derived from large-scale text and image resources, and applying the resulting computational models to multivariate statistical analysis of neuroimaging data. In particular, Dr Devereux has published research on semantic processing and information extraction from unstructured text, and built multidimensional data models to represent the meanings of words, concepts, and phrases in natural language, including unstructured clinical text.

Potential Projects

I would be interested in co-supervising interdisciplinary projects that combine machine learning and artificial intelligence with research questions in neuroscience, dementia and public health.
