Research and Practice Interests
Visit http://shomir.net for up-to-date information on my research and a list of my publications.
My research brings together natural language processing (NLP), privacy, and artificial intelligence.
A line of research that I call "the metalanguage project" is also part of my continuing work. This is an effort to automatically identify instances of metalanguage (i.e., statements about language use or production) in text and extract from them direct, precise information about artifacts of communication.
Shomir Wilson is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Cincinnati. His professional interests span pure and applied research in natural language processing, privacy, and artificial intelligence.
Shomir received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Maryland in 2011. Twice during graduate school he was awarded fellowships from the NSF's East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes, which supported him as a visiting researcher at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia and the National University of Singapore. He received bachelor's degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Philosophy from Virginia Tech in 2005.
