Fatemeh Torabi Asr

I am currently a post-doctoral fellow at the Discourse Processing Lab within the Department of Linguistics at Simon Fraser University. With a background in software engineering and research experience in the area of cognitive computing and computational linguistics (NLP), I aim at understanding semantic processing in human brain and developing language-intelligent systems that benefit human society. My current research is focused on social media and news text analysis for the purposes of misinformation detection and gender gap tracking in media.
