About Nina Tahmasebi

My research primarily concerns the computational study of lexical semantic change. I am the PI for the research project “Towards Computational Lexical Semantic Change Detection”, a project in which the developed state-of-the-art methods for detecting lexical semantic change, combined with robust evaluation, and application to other fields that might benefit from the results.

I take a particular interest in data science for the humanities; how can we make use of current AI/data science methods to answer (the often highly complex) research questions that stem from the humanities. What are current possibilities and limitations, and how do we move past them? I teach statistics for the humanities, and lead a study circle on data science and AI for the humanities for researchers at the faculty. I worked 2 years at the Center for Digital Humanities (CDH) at the University of Gothenburg.

My work at Språkbanken includes sentiment analysis and the creation of sentiment lexica, argument mining, large-scale NLP for historical texts.
