Dr Mark Lee is a Senior Lecturer and Head of School in the School of Computer Science. His research interests are focussed on Natural Language Processing. He is specifically interested in Sentiment Analysis of text, the automatic identification and understanding of metaphor and the effects of pragmatic inference in dialogue processing. More recently he has been investigating the extraction of constraints from text to build formal models for reasoning. He is the Principal Investigator of an EPSRC funded project on Automated Conflict Resolution in Clinical Pathways.
