Caleb Ziems

Caleb is a first-year PhD student in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech, where he is advised by Prof. Diyi Yang. He is interested in computational social science, data mining, and natural language processing.

In his research, Caleb uses large-scale data-driven methods to understand human behavior and communication. His special interest is in anti-social behaviors like cyberbullying and hate speech, and he is actively working to make the internet a safer place.

Moving forward, he hopes 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.
