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 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. In addition, the project focusses on exploring best practices and innovative use of chatbots, and creating a learning community of educators. 

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