Chris Tanner

Lecturer in Computational Science
Chris Tanner

In 2019, Chris completed his PhD from Brown University in computer science. His research lies within natural language processing (NLP), specifically discourse, semantics, and understanding, and the persistent theme is trying to better understand, within any body of text, what is being said, what exactly is happening, and who is who? Current projects concern entity linking, knowledge graphs, American Sign Language (ASL) translation, and coreference resolution. He is always interested in collaborating with and mentoring students to tackle new, exciting projects.

His other passions include traveling, photography, woodworking, sewing/designing backpacks, and going on challenging hikes.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, Chris's teaching portfolio includes Data Science I & II and the Capstone Research Project course.
