I’m a computational social scientist studying the social and epistemic dynamics of the global scientific ecosystem. I mostly rely on using neural-network based representation learning to construct simplified embeddings of bibliometric and social networks. I also more generally leverage data science tools such as machine learning, statistical analysis, bibliometrics, and corpus linguistics to make sense of scholarly data.
I am currently pursuing a PhD at Indiana University Bloomington in the department of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering. I have been fortunate enough to be advised by Dr. Cassidy Sugimoto and am currently working as a research assistant on the Minerva-funded Sciecne Genome project. Apart from work, I enjoy running, cooking, traveling, and reading science fiction.
