Dr. Noorhan Abbas


I studied Computer Science and Business Administration at the American University in Cairo before completing my MSc. in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing at University of Leeds.  In 2009, I joined the intelligence team at Cumbria Constabulary as a researcher.  Three years later, I joined the corpus linguistics team at the University of Leeds as a research fellow and then finished my PhD from Lancaster University.   I am currently working in the Edubots project at the school of Computing in Leeds.  It is an Erasmus+ Knowledge Alliance project that aims to improve results and raise attainment levels in European higher education. This project focusses on exploring best practices and innovative use of chatbots, and creating a learning community of educators. In addition, I am teaching Data Science to MSc Artificial Intelligence students at University of Leeds.

I am a member of the Artificial Intelligence for Language research group (University of Leeds).
