Saadia Gabriel is a Faculty Fellow at the NYU Center for Data Science. Her research revolves around natural language processing and machine learning, with a particular focus on building systems for understanding how social commonsense manifests in text (i.e. how do people typically behave in social scenarios), as well as mitigating spread of false or harmful text (e.g. Covid-19 misinformation). She recently founded the Misinformation, AI & Responsible Society Lab to better understand how AI impacts human belief systems and to design systems that can recognize and function across cultural barriers.
