I am an Associate Professor at the School of Information Sciences (the iSchool) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I got my PhD from Carnegie Mellon, School of Computer Science, in "Computation, Organizations and Society" (now Societal Computing).
In my lab, we focus on Human-Centered Data Science, Social Computing and Computational Social Science, and Responsible Computing. To do that, we integrate and advance methods from network science, natural language processing and machine learning with theories from the social sciences and humanities to study interaction-based and information-based systems. Currently, we are working on projects related to 1) studying consequences of biases in data, technology and human decision making, 2) validating social network theories in contemporary settings, 3) impact assessment, 4) socio-semantic networks, 4) crisis informatics, and 5) data governance.
