Nabil Hossain

I am a 3rd year PhD student in the Computer Science Dept in University of Rochester, advised by Prof. Henry Kautz.

My broad research interests are in the intersection of Natural Language Processing, Machine Learning and Data Mining. I am currently working on computational humor and the filtering of hate speech content in online communities.

I finished my undergraduate degree in Bard College, majoring in Computer Science and Mathematics. Prior to coming to Rochester, I spent a year in Toyota Technological Institute at Chicago (TTIC), where I worked on Spoken Term Detection in low-resource languages, advised by Prof. Karen Livescu and Prof. Greg Shakhnarovich.
