Informatics

At the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering I study complex networks and systems. I am broadly interested in computational social science, however, my research interests focus on understanding misinformation and disinformation on social media platforms. Currently, I work with Dr. Fil Menczer.

I earned a General Psychology masters degree at New York University.

This project was conducted in partnership with the Center for Social Media and Politics.
