Dr Md Zia Ullah

Biography Md Zia Ullah is a Lecturer in the School of Computing, Engineering & Built Environments at Edinburgh Napier University.

He received his B.Sc. (Hons.) degree from the University of Chittagong, Chittagong, Bangladesh in 2010, and his
M.Eng. and PhD degrees from the Toyohashi University of Technology, Toyohashi, Japan in 2013 and 2016.

He worked as a Post-doctoral researcher at Universite Toulouse - Paul Sabatier, CNRS, and Universite de Toulouse - Jean Jaures, Toulouse, France from 2017 to 2022 on Query performance prediction, Adaptive information retrieval, and Check-worthiness of Political claims . During his Post-doc, he also worked on the EU H2020 Project PREVISION on Machine learning applications and lectured Data analytics at the Université Toulouse I Capitole, France.

His research interests lie primarily in Information retrieval (IR), Natural language Processing (NLP), and Applied machine learning (ML). His research has focused on Adaptive information retrieval, Query performance prediction, Statistical analysis of IR system components, Intent mining and diversification, and Deep learning-based histopathological image recognition. He has co-patented an adaptive IR technique and published his research outcomes in the international journals and conferences of his domain, including ACM TOIS, ACM TIST, ACM SIGIR, ACM CIKM, and IEEE EMBS. To evaluate his research ideas, he actively participated in evaluation forums such as TREC, CLEF, and NTCIR for obtaining the benchmark datasets.
