Hanna Wallach

Hanna develops machine learning methods for analyzing the structure, content, and dynamics of social processes.

Her work is inherently interdisciplinary: she collaborates with political scientists, sociologists, and journalists to understand how organizations work by analyzing publicly available interaction data, such as email networks, document collections, press releases, meeting transcripts, and news articles.

To complement this agenda, she also studies issues of fairness, accountability, and transparency as they relate to machine learning.

Hanna’s research has had broad impact in machine learning, natural language processing, and computational social science.

She co-founded two projects—the first of their kind—to increase women’s involvement in free and open source software development: Debian Women and the GNOME Women’s Summer Outreach Program.
