She further devised a new method to automatically infer implicit or prototypical sentiment. Her other research interests include sentiment and emotion analysis in social media text and the detection of cyberbullying, which was one of the use cases of the AMiCA (Automatic Monitoring for Cyberspace Applications) project in which she was actively involved.
