Let's work and learn together. I'm recruiting students of all levels (Bachelor's, Master's, PhD), and a postdoc. If you have interest and motivation, we'll (most likely) find a project that fits. The projects are broadly in science of science, collaboration, and text analysis. Get in touch if the following sound like skills/interests you have or want to improve:


  • "Science of science" - using large-scale data and experiments to learn about (and optimize) scientific discovery


  • Programming in Python, R, or similar
  • Experiments
  • Statistics for data analysis, causal inference
  • Natural language processing

Future PhD students: apply to UMSI. This is among the best places in the world (!!!) to do cutting-edge computational social science research, and Science of Science in particular. For the latter, check out colleagues such as David Jurgens, Daniel Romero, Andrea Thomer, Qiaozhu Mei, and the list goes on and on. Don't hesitate to ask what our group is up to or put my name in your application.
