I'm a PhD candidate at the University of Technology Sydney, interested in how people exhibit opinions and behaviours in online social environments.
I'm interested in online social behaviour and discourse modelling, because I consider these incredibly important for understanding and mitigating modern phenomena. There are several modern challenges where this modelling helps; firstly, understanding and mitigating the spread of misinformation online (#5g #covid19 , #qanon, etc.), secondly, profiling characteristics and behaviours of online users (Voting practices, personality profiling, etc.) , and finally, identifying highly influential users and ideas. I am formally trained in computer science and actuarial science, completing my Bachelor of Advanced Computing (Honours) and Bachelor of Actuarial Studies at the Australian National University in 2019. I continue to focus my learning toward statistical learning methods, data science practises, and research methods.
