Dr. Gareth Tyson



About Me

I am a Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary University of London, and a Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute. I am Deputy Director of the Institute of Applied Data Science (IADS), I co-lead the Social Data Science Lab (SDS), and am Deputy Director of the DAME PhD CDT. My research is in the broad area of Internet Data Science: details of my publications can be found here. Over the last 4 years, I have been awarded almost £2 million in research funding and have received coverage from news outlets such as MIT Tech Review, Washington Post, Slashdot, BBC, The Times, Daily Mail, Wired, Science Daily, Ars Technica, The Independent, Business Insider and The Register. I also serve as a reviewer and program committee member for a number of prominent conferences/journals such as IEEE/ACM ToN, IEEE JSAC, IEEE TPDS, ACM CoNEXT, IEEE ICDCS and ICWSM. I recently arranged ACM IMC and ACM DEV, which were hosted at Queen Mary, and recieved the Outstanding Reviewer Award thrice at ICWSM (2016, 2018, 2019). Our research was awarded the Best Student Paper Award at the Web Conference 2020; the Best Paper Award at eCrime'19; the Honourable Mention Award at the Web Conference 2018 (best paper in track); the Best Presentation Award at INFOCOM'18; and the Brendan Murphy Memorial Young Researcher Prize. I am currently looking for PhD students.

PhD Supervision and Teaching

I supervise PhDs in the (broad) areas of social computing, data science and computer systems. I am the Deputy Director of the DAME Centre for Doctoral Training, and am currently looking for PhD students in the area of social computing - you can apply here. Most of my projects involve a lot of data collection and analysis, so a real-world focus is a must. Please drop me a mail if you're interested in brainstorming topics - we currently have several studentships for home/international students and HEC students. Please contact me if you are interested in this opportunity. I have also been teaching the following modules:
