Prof. Dragomir Radev was honored as an ACM Fellow at the annual ACM Awards Banquet, which took place June 11th in San Francisco, CA. The ACM Awards honors those whose contributions have impacted our world for the better in countless ways.

ACM has recognized 42 of its members for their significant contributions to the development and application of computing in areas from data management and spoken-language processing to robotics and cryptography.

Prof. Radev was elected a Fellow for “contributions to natural language processing and computational linguistics.” He is a leader in the field of computational linguistics, which leverages techniques from computer science and linguistics and is concerned with the computational aspects of the human language faculty. His research takes place at the intersection of information retrieval, natural language processing, machine learning, bioinformatics, text and data mining, social networks, social media, collective behavior, text generation, information extraction, and artificial intelligence.
