Title: Assessing and Mitigating the Impact of Global Phenomena, Geopolitical Factors, and Bias on Research
The scientific enterprise is affected by global phenomena, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, geopolitical factors and different kinds of bias. This PhD project aims at shedding light on these issues and assessing their impact across gender, countries, disciplines and others. The main objective is to exploit large-scale datasets of scholarly knowledge, i.e., scientific knowledge graphs, to analyse collaboration, productivity, and other factors with the aim of understanding the extent of the phenomenon and identifying strategies to make scientific research more inclusive and resilient to external factors.

Title: Supporting Scientific Research with Knowledge Graphs
This PhD project aims at developing a new generation of intelligent systems for exploring and analysing the scientific literature with the goal of improving efficiency and verifiability of research. The traditional document-centric approaches for searching the literature do not scale to the large number of articles produced today. We aim to introduce a modern knowledge-centric solution by automatically extracting structured representations of research knowledge from very large repositories of research publications. The candidate will design novel approaches that exploit these knowledge graphs for answering complex queries on the literature, recommending articles, predicting emerging topics, and producing research hypotheses.
