As a post-doc, I am working on using Virtual Reality to help people understand the importance of vaccines. As part of my PhD, I have used data science methods to document how partisan radio shows react to newsworthy events. I have researched people’s opinions on political issues, and found that they don’t depend on what is good for their social groups. Finally, I have worked on measuring worldwide climate change concern.
