My research pursuits at Penn focus on interdisciplinary analysis in the fields of computational social science. Over my time as a part of the Penn Computational Social Science Lab, I helped design a surveyor framework to input and process worker surveys to supplement our large-scale lab experiments. We also studied the workings of commonsense, including its predictors and prevalence in various knowledge domains. Over the summer, as part of the PURM program, I worked at the Perelman School of Medicine on modeling pollution indicators versus demographic concentrations in the Philadelphia region. The funding from CURF allowed me to work in a collaborative environment, which was invaluable during a pandemic.

If you have any questions about the research process or just want to talk about data science and computational analysis, please feel free to reach out!
