Bhaskar Mitra

Principal Researcher


I am a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research based in Montreal, Canada. My research focuses on AI-mediated information and knowledge access and questions of fairness and ethics in the context of these sociotechnical systems. I am also interested in evaluation and benchmarking, and co-organized the MS MARCO ranking leaderboards (opens in new tab), the TREC Deep Learning Track (opens in new tab) (2019-2023), and the TREC Tip-of-the-Tongue Track (opens in new tab) (2023). I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from University College London under the supervision of Dr. Emine Yilmaz (opens in new tab).
