About Me

I am an assistant professor in the Information School at University of Washington. My research interests are in Social Computing, where I combine ideas from both computer science and social science to uncover insights about social life online via large datasets. Currently, one major focus of my research is understanding and designing defenses against problematic information in online social platforms.

From August 2017 to 2020, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech. I completed my PhD in Computer Science from Georgia Tech, where I was a Foley Scholar. Previously, I have also worked in the neXus group at Microsoft Research, and the CUES group at IBM Research.
