Career Profile

I am a data scientist passionate about social computing, machine learning, and privacy. My prior work includes several large-scale studies on social networks and investigating the efficiency of machine learning tools for the identification of online hate speech. In the past, I served as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at University College London and a Research Assistant at Queen Mary University of London.
