Current Research Interests:
Come work with me on some of the most vexing threats to democratic nations, including disinformation, weaponized controversy, trust erosion on- and offline, and botnets. Use state-of-the-art technologies and help collect petabyte-scale datasets from social networks.
My research focuses on threats to the information ecosystem online and to healthy public discourse from an information retrieval lens, informed by insights from the social sciences. My lab tackles these research questions from an AI ethics, fairness & safety perspective.
Current Research Projects:
Upcoming projects address the connections between m/disinformation and weaponized controversy, online and in social networks. Additionally, my work addresses fairness and bias in medicine.
