Ph.D. Student

Northwestern University


I am a Ph.D. student in Technology and Social Behavior, a joint program in Computer Science and Communications. Under supervision of Ágnes Horvát, I study how social signals collected from crowds of people can be used for evaluation of cultural works. To answer this question, I perform large-scale data analyses and build computational tools to support them. My methods of choice are network analysis, machine learning, and computational modeling.


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. 🎉

Mar ’18 : Presented a poster at CompleNet about aggregation of centrality indices.
