Research title: Modelling Uncertainties in Neural Networks for Improved Defence against Adversarial Attacks

Research Summary

I obtained my BSc in Computing Science from the University of Glasgow in 2022. After a research placement I joined the IR group at Glasgow working on search. I have made contributions to the PyTerrier framework maintained at Glasgow which can be accessed from my website.

Main Research Interests

  • Neural Ranking Models
  • Adversarial Attacks in Search
  • Efficient Neural Training

My Research

I am interested in how the overparameterized language models that underpin neural search often display behaviour which diverges from a user's notion of relevance. I am working to expose these weaknesses whilst improving efficiency to make neural search a more viable option in industry.
