My past work is a good indication of the kinds of projects we may undertake together. I also look forward to supporting your independent research agenda, possibly in collaboration with other faculty members.
If you are applying to social science programs, my research group will be unusual for its engagement with machine learning and data science. Computing power should change the way we conduct research in social science. We will define social science questions and translate them to prediction tasks amenable to data science tools.
If you are applying to computer science programs, my research group will be unusual for its engagement with social scientists. For example, you can expect to be involved with the Center for the Study of Inequality and the Cornell Population Center.
In either case, an interdisciplinary space is the best way to become a computational social scientist!
