Dragomir R. Radev is a Yale University professor of computer science working on natural language processing and information retrieval. He previously served as a University of Michigan computer science professor and Columbia University computer science adjunct professor. Radev serves as Member of the Advisory Board of Lawyaw [1].

He is currently working on the fields of open domain question answering, multi-document summarization, and the application of NLP in Bioinformatics and Political Science.

Radev received his PhD in Computer Science from Columbia University in 1999. He is the secretary of ACL (2006–present) and associate editor of JAIR.


As NACLO founder, Radev shared the Linguistic Society of America 2011 Linguistics, Language and the Public Award. He is the Co-winner of the Gosnell Prize (2006).

In 2015 he was named a fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery "for contributions to natural language processing and computational linguistics."[2]


Radev has served as the coach and led the US national team in the International Linguistics Olympiad (IOL) to several gold medals [1][2].
