I am an incoming assistant professor of computer science at Dartmouth College (starting in spring 2019), and an affiliate the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University. I am also a technical advisor to the nonprofit organization Cortico. My main interests lie at the intersection of natural language processing, social media analytics, machine learning and network science. I am interested in applying these field to study complex social behaviors.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral associate at MIT and a fellow 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 received my Phd, MSc and BSc from MIT.
