My primary research areas center around applying statistical and computational methods (network analysis, text analysis, and machine learning) as well as experiments to achieve a better understanding of the diffusion of political information in online space and how it affects poltical attitude and behavior. I also study politicians’ online communication to understand how public policies are developed and spread within and across state borders.
