Hal Daumé III is a Perotto Professor in Computer Science at the University of Maryland, College Park;
he also spends time at Microsoft Research, New York City.
He holds joint appointments in UMIACS and Language Science. He was previously an
assistant professor in the School of
Computing at the University of
His primary research interest is in developing new learning algorithms
for prototypical problems that arise in the context of natural
language processing and artificial intelligence, with a focus on
interactive learning and building systems that minimize social harms.
He has received several
awards, including best paper at ACL 2018, NAACL 2016,
CEAS 2011 and ECML 2009, as well as best demo at NeurIPS 2015.
He has been program chair for NAACL 2013 (and
chair of its executive board), and ICML
2020; he was an inaugural diversity and inclusion co-chair at NeurIPS
He earned his PhD at the
University of Southern California with a thesis on structured prediction for
language (his advisor was Daniel Marcu).
When not sciencing, he spends most of his time working on the six
limbs of yoga, cooking vegan food, and enjoying the outdoors
(climbing, backpacking, skiing, etc.).
