This is the website for David Bamman’s research group! We are researchers at University of California, Berkeley’s School of Information and BAIR. Our work spans a variety of areas, including but not limited to: computational social science, cultural analytics, natural language processing, and computational precision health.

Prospective undergraduate research assistants should apply through URAP at the beginning of each semester.

You can also visit some of our friends around campus: Berkeley HCI, Berkeley NLP, and Digital Humanities at Berkeley.
