Drahomira Herrmannova

ASTRO/ORISE Graduate Research Intern

Drahomira Herrmannova's current work lies in a unique area between text-mining and research evaluation. Her research directly resulted in the development of a new area called semantometrics, which uses full-text for research evaluation. She has developed several methods which demonstrate the benefits and suitability of using full-text in automated impact assessment, which led to a research grant and two fully funded PhD scholarships for her university. She is well connected in the academic community and has been organizing research workshops since 2014 to bring together different communities working on related problems in text mining of research publications. She has been a finalist in two international research competitions.
