Chris Tanasescu has degrees in both English and Computer Science and works at the intersection of Natural Language Processing (NLP), network analysis, poetry, and translation.
He is the author, editor, or translator of over twenty books, including an internationally praised computationally assembled poetry anthology and a topic-modeling-driven collaborative poetry collection described by Servanne Monjour (Sorbonne University) as a “pioneering computational translation.”
As an internationally awarded intermedia poet (a.k.a. MARGENTO), he has chaired the #GraphPoem performances at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute since 2019.
He previously served as Professor and Coordinator of Digital Humanities at University of Ottawa and Altissia Chair of Digital Cultures and Ethics at UCLouvain, and currently fills the position of Senior Research Scientist with GlobaLS and CoSIN3 contributing to the GlobaLS lab’s Global Translation Flows research line.
