Camille A. Harris


I’m a rising 4th year PhD student at the Georgia Institute of Technology in the Interactive Computing program. I’m advised by Diyi Yang and Neha Kumar. My research primarily focuses on biases towards underrepresented, indigenous, and colonized dialects and languages in natural language processing (NLP). Beyond that, I also study a wide span of research problems related to marginalized groups and their experiences with social media and AI systems, spanning NLP, Human Computer Interaction, and Social Computing. I am a Ford Predoctoral Fellow and a GEM Fellow.

Currently I am an intern at IBM Research on the Tech for Justice Team. Previously I was a research intern on the algorithm fairness team at Snap Inc. and an intern at Adobe Research. I earned a Bachelor’s in Computer Science at the University of California Berkeley, go Bears!
