I am a research scientist at MIT Sloan School of Management. My work falls at the intersection of computational and social sciences. I study social networks, online social media, and misinformation. In particular, I investigate how our cognition relates to our behavior in social networks.
I use theoretical models based on evolutionary game theory, network science, agent-based modeling as well as empirical (data-driven) models based on online experiments, machine learning, and natural language processing.
Prior to joining MIT, I was a researcher at Department of Psychology at Yale. I received my PhD in Systems Engineering with a minor in Business Intelligence and Analytics, Masters in Management, and BSc in Engineering. Before starting my PhD, I was a Systems and Software Integration Lead for five years.
