Eugenia Rho, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford Computer Science and an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Virginia Tech (starting in Fall 2021). She applies machine learning and experimental design to examine linguistic behavior across discussions around substantive social issues. Her research at Stanford focuses on predicting linguistic patterns in escalations across police-community interactions by applying NLP techniques on dialogue captured through police-body cameras.
