I am a Sociology PhD student at the University of California, Irvine and a proud member of the Networks, Computation, and Social Dynamics (NCASD) Lab lead by Dr. Carter Butts. Prior to my time at UCI, I received a Bachelors of Mathematics from the University of Central Florida as a Provost Scholar.
My research interests include using natural language processing for text analysis in the social sciences along with social network analysis and mathematical sociology.
At the time of writing, my colleagues and I are implementing large language models and kernel learning methods to classify crisis and disaster messages.
