I am Postdoctoral Researcher at the Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing Division of the Biocomplexity Institute and Initiative at the University of Virginia . I am generally interested in building tools and systems that allow humans to extract information out of large amounts of data and analyzing and modeling behavior of large groups of humans on online social media. For this purpose, I use tools from statistics, machine learning, natural language processing, network analysis, and agent based modeling.
