Work with me

Let's work together. I'm looking to hire students of all levels (Bachelor's, Master's, PhD), and a postdoc. If you have interest and motivation, we'll (most likely) find a project that fits! The projects are broadly in computational social science. Get in touch if the following sound like skills/interests you have, want to learn, or perfect:

  • Substantive area: "science of science" -- using data and experiments to learn about (and optimize) scientific discovery
  • Substantive area: "online communities" -- designing collaborative environments that work even on politically polarized topics
  • Methods: programming in Python, R, or similar
  • Methods: statistics for data analysis, causal inference
  • Methods: natural language processing
  • Methods: design of social science studies, in particular experiments

Future PhD students: apply to UMSI! This is among the best places in the world (!!!) to do cutting-edge computational social science research, and Science of Science in particular. For the latter, check out colleagues such as David Jurgens, Daniel Romero, Andrea Thomer, Qiaozhu Mei, and the list goes on and on, oh and my work! Don't hesitate to ask what our group is up to or put my name in your application.
