Welcome to my home page. My name is
Nizar Habash (pronounced /nəzár ħábaʃ/).
I am a Research Scientist at the Center for Computational Learning
systems in Columbia University. My
area of interest is computational linguistics/natural language processing.
I work on machine translation, natural language generation,
computational lexical semantics, Arabic dialect modeling, among other things.
(translation: I get machines to do cool stuff with language such as
automatically translating from Arabic or Spanish to English).
I am also an amateur artist.
One of my favorite art projects is my artificial language Delason.
It took seven years in the making. My current large art project is Palisra, a collection of pieces reflecting my views on
the Middle East conflict.
I sell some of my artisitic creations through Zazzle:
my art product line.
