Faculty Director, Digital Humanities and Text Analysis

David Bamman is an assistant professor in the School of Information at UC Berkeley, where he works on applying natural language processing and machine learning to empirical questions in the humanities and social sciences. His research often involves adding linguistic structure (e.g., syntax, semantics, coreference) to statistical models of text, and focuses on improving NLP for a variety of languages and domains (such as literary text and social media). At UC Berkeley's D-Lab, he serves as Faculty Director for the Berkeley Digital Humanities Working Group and Computational Text Analysis Working Group. Before Berkeley, he received his PhD in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University and was a senior researcher at the Perseus Project of Tufts University.
