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 crowds of people come together to produce cultural works and how they collectively pay attention to them. To answer these questions, 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.

In my network: CCN lab (NU, upcoming), SONIC lab (NU), CDSC (NU + UWash), and ANR lab (Higher School of Economics).
