Ágnes Horvát, assistant professor of Communication and Computer Science (by courtesy) at Northwestern University will present "Science on the Web: How networks bias academic communication online."
Ágnes Horvát is an assistant professor of Communication and Computer Science (by courtesy) at Northwestern University. Her research lies at the intersection of computational social science, social computing, and communication. Using interdisciplinary approaches and data science, her research group, the Lab on Innovation, Networks, and Knowledge (LINK), investigates how networks induce biased information production, sharing, and processing on digital platforms.
