I am a first-year PhD student in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, where I am advised by Prof. Diyi Yang. I am interested in understanding human behavior and communication using large-scale data-driven methods from computational social science and natural language processing.

My special interest is in anti-social behaviors like cyberbullying and hate speech, and I am actively working to make the internet a safer place.

I am also working on understanding bias and political orientation in text.

Moving forward, I hope to study misinformation and deception, coordinated market manipulations, as well as agenda-setting and linguistic framing, political movements, group-level conflicts, social roles, and patterns of abuse on the web.
