Dyaa Albakour

Data Scientist - Researcher in Information Retrieval

Welcome to my personal web page.

I work as a lead data scientist at a London-based company called Signal AI. In particular, I lead a team of data scientists and data engineers to reserach and develop text analytics services for a large-scale business intelligence platform. The platform supports reputation management, media coverage reporting, content marketing and other use cases.
