3Red Partners (we're hiring!)


Before transitioning to the industry, I was getting a Ph.D. at Northwestern in Computer Science and Communication. I studied how social signals collected from crowds of people could be used for evaluation of scientific and technological works, and prediction of their future success. To answer this question, I performed large-scale data analyses and built computational tools to support them. My methods of choice are machine learning, Bayesian modeling, network analysis, and natural language processing.


July ’19 : My paper about dissemination of research articles was accepted to ICWSM, happening in Atlanta.

May ’19 : My paper about investor retention in equity crowdfunding will appear at WebSci.

Mar ’19 : Giving a talk at NICO about dissemination of scientific articles on the online media. Upcoming talk at ICA in May!

Jul ’18 : Presented a poster at IC2S2 about temporality of citations in science, art, and technology.

Jun ’18 : Together with Yian Yin and Kyosuke Tanaka, won a mini-grant from SICSS to research package ecosystems. 🎉
