Hello. I am a PhD student at UC San Diego.
My research interests lie in the realm of computational social science, the political economy of information technology, and political methodology. I use statistical and computational models to study large-scale human behaviors in online communities. Substantively, I am interested in how authoritarian regimes utilize informational tools for control and influence.
My recent works have been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, PLOS One, Journal of Communication, and Journal of Quantitative Description: Digital Media.
Here are my resume and vita. Other than my research, you will also find an updated list of useful resources for empirical work, coupled with some personal thoughts. Feel free to reach me at my email.
