Research focus

I am interested in the blurry lines between fiction and information—and how we can use quantitative digital humanities methods like text analysis to better understand traditional media and social media content at scale. I am also interested in then leveraging text-based technology to promote more positive online social interactions. I am particularly interested in how text mining research and human-centered design considerations can benefit queer youth and disabled communities.
