Current mentors

Introduction

The Computer Science Mentoring Team is made up of a variety of 2nd and 3rd year research students, all of which have differing skills and research interests, but all of whom are ready to help.

Tariq Ahmad

Hi! I'm Tariq, a third year PhD student in the Formal Methods group, supervised by Professor Allan Ramsay. My work is focused on mining and analysing tweets with a view to constructing new (Arabic) lexicons. Studying for a PhD is definitely a lot of hard work but with motivation and a good relationship with your supervisor, you will succeed. Please feel free to contact me with any issues, concerns or questions you might have about anything related to your PhD.

Alex Bogatu

Hello! I'm Alex, a PhD student (CDT) in the Information Management Group. I've been around since 2015 working under the supervision of Prof. Norman W. Paton and Dr. Alvaro A.A. Fernandes on Data Wrangling. I am a strong believer that the PhD is definitely not a struggle, but a unique experience and a challenge. As a mentor, I'm trying to inspire this view and to help people in any other way I can. You can get to know me better here https://goo.gl/qoXg9f.

Lara Mazilu

Hello, I'm Lara, a PhD student from the 2015 CDT cohort. I am in the Information Management Group and my PhD project is related to a branch of Data Integration, namely schema mapping generation. More specifically, I try to bring together information from disjoint, heterogeneous sources (database schemas) in a meaningful way, i.e., correlating the data and eliminating redundancy as much as possible. I am supervised by Dr. Alvaro Fernandes and Prof. Norman Paton. Please feel free to contact me with any issue you may have, I would be more than happy to help.

Alina Neculae

I'm Georgiana, a third year CDT student. I am part of the MLO (Machine Learning and Optimisation) group, supervised by Prof Gavin Brown. My project is looking at gaining a better understanding of Spiking Neural Networks in the context of Ensemble Learning. I became a mentor in the hope of helping new PhDs adjust more easily to their new environment so if you have any questions please feel free to send me an email; I am more than happy to help!

Cameron Shand

I'm Cameron, a 3rd year CDT student. I'm supervised by Prof John Keane and Dr Richard Allmendinger, and we're looking at how to better cluster data in nonstationary environments. As a mentor I want to help with any questions you might have, and particularly as I'm from a very non-CS background if you're in a similar boat and have concerns I'll try to help dispel those worries!
