Abe Handler

I am an assistant professor with the Leeds School of Business (and Information Science, by courtesy) at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I earned a PhD in computer science in 2021 from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where I was a member of the UMass NLP group.

As a researcher, I develop new natural language processing methods for new intelligent user interfaces. I am particularly interested in tools and methods for searching, analyzing and making sense of large bodies of text. In this work, I design and build systems with collaborators from human-computer interaction, develop algorithms for efficient summarization, and research new natural language processing techniques to support new ways of analyzing documents. For more information, please see my research statement.
