I am called Marie-Claire Jenkins (a.k.a CJ).
I am completing a PhD in Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence. I’m not all student, I’ve also worked as an SEO for over 6 years now. They call me a “Senior seo” now, I think that’s because I’m 31. I’ve worked mostly for fortune 500′s but also for smaller sites and I’ve deployed all sorts of campaigns in all sorts of different domains. I am also a researcher and I sometimes review papers, and also write them. I speak a fair bit out and about too, if you’d like me to come and speak at a place near you, get in touch. I completed a degree in Translating-Interpreting French & German and also a Masters in Computer Science (dissertation: machine translation, it made sense). You are likely to find me in the surf or on a yoga mat when I’m not in front of my laptop.
This blog is a place to share my passion for search both as a computer scientist and as a marketing professional.
