Rezvaneh (Shadi) Rezapour is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Science
at Drexel's College of Computing & Informatics. Her research interests lie at the intersection of computational social science and natural language processing (NLP). More specifically, she is interested in bringing computational models and social science theories together, to analyze user-generated texts and better understand and explain real-world behaviors, attitudes, and cultures. Her research goal is to develop "socially-aware" NLP models that bring social contexts and users' socio-cultural information in analyzing human language to better capture attributes, such as social identities, stances, morals, and power from language, and describe and understand real-world communication.
