The Social NLP Lab: Understanding Language, Culture, and Society through Data

Our lab explores the socio-cultural dimensions of human and machine-generated texts by integrating natural language processing, computational social science, social network analysis, and human-centered data science. Our research aims to understand how language influences social interactions and cultural practices.
