Dr. Alexander O'Connor
Lecturer in the School of Computing, Dublin City University

Room L2.49, School of Computing, Dublin City University, Glasnevin, Dublin 9, Ireland


My main research interest is content analysis for personalisation—software that fits the user's specific needs and preferences. I have worked with technologies like Linked Open Data, Topic Modelling, Adaptive Hypermedia, Web Services & Web Applications. I have applied this work to Technology-enhanced Learning, Customer Care, and Digital Humanities.


I am open to supervise Final Year, Masters or PhD projects on topics including: content analysis, language technologies, digital humanities and customer care. If you have an idea you want to explore, please do get in touch!
