Su Lin Blodgett


I am a fourth-year M.S./Ph.D student in computer science at UMass Amherst working in the Statistical Social Language Analysis Lab with Professor Brendan O'Connor. I am interested in using statistical text analysis to answer social science, particularly sociolinguistic, questions. Currently, I am working on developing models to identify dialectal variation on social media.

I am also interested in developing fair, robust tools for computational social science.

I am supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I received my B.A. in mathematics from Wellesley College.

In the interview for the UMass Women in Science video series, I briefly describe my work and my journey to computer science.
