Congratulations, Dr Overell!

Simon Overell recently published his PhD thesis Geographic Information Retrieval: Classification, Disambiguation and Modelling following his viva in April that he passed with flying colours. With this PhD project finished, Simon’s primary supervisor Professor Stefan Rüger of KMi, can now look back at eight eminently successful PhD supervisions at his former institution Imperial College London, where Simon was a a full-time PhD student in information retrieval at the Department of Computing.

Simon’s research augmented the Geographic Information Retrieval process with information extracted from world knowledge through three approaches: classifying world knowledge, disambiguating placenames and modelling users. Simon joined TrueKnowledge Ltd in Cambridge after submitting his PhD thesis for examination.
