I am a doctoral student in information science at Indiana University Bloomington. I use computational methods and large datasets to investigate social scientific questions. Lately I have been working with Meysam Alizadeh and Santo Fortunato to study the psychological profiles and personality traits of individuals with nationalistic tendencies on Twitter.
I have also spent a significant amount of time teaching different courses at IU, including: Web Programming, Database Design, Python Programming, Agent-based Modeling and Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science.
Over the years at IU I have been associated most notably with Hamid Ekbia‘s Center for Research on Mediated Interaction (CROMI) and Colin Allen‘s ‘Diss-writers’ (Dissertation writers) group. My other advisors are Howard Rosenbaum, Stasa Milojevic and Allen Riddell.
These days, I can be seen looking sleepy while coding and writing in coffee places in downtown Bloomington Indiana.
