I am an assistant professor of computer science at Dartmouth, where I lead the minds, machines, and society group. I am also a faculty member of the machine learning lab, the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS), and the Quantitative Biomedical Sciences (QBS) program at Dartmouth. My main interests lie at the intersection of machine learning, natural language processing, network science, and social media analytics. My lab develops and applies methods to mine and model unstructured data from various domains. The specific problems my lab investigates are varied and cross-disciplinary.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral associate at MIT and a fellow and later an affiliate at the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University. As a postdoc at MIT, I was the technical director of the “Electome” project where our team of graduate and undergraduate students developed a collection of tools for automatic detection and categorization of election-related content on Twitter. Our team was invited to be an official partner of the Commission on Presidential Debates during the 2016 elections. I also served as a technical advisor to the nonprofit organization Cortico from 2016 to 2019. I received my Phd, MSc and BSc from MIT.
