Please describe your major research, activities, and current research themes.
My main research focuses on finding patterns in data. In particular analyzing data from Twitter to detect interesting findings in the use of color terms in different cultures. Colors are used differently in countries and data analysis can help understanding some mechanisms behind that.
Another topic is the analysis of educational data. Understanding student and teacher behavior can help to create a better learning environment.
