About Me

Paul Taylor is Professor of Human Interaction at the University of Twente. His expertise is the collection and analysis of behaviour sequence data (often using technology), particularly the verbal and nonverbal data of interpersonal interactions. His work has developed a framework for understanding communicative sensemaking, developed novel ways of tracking social cohesion online, and built language-based tools for detecting insider threat. In October 2015, Paul became the inaugural director of the UK's Centre for Research and Evidence in Security Threats, which is funded by the UK security and intelligence agencies.
