Research Interest

Having studied computer and political science, my primary interest is in the relationship between the internet and political participation. More specifically, I am interested in political disinformation and computational propaganda (e.g. Twitter bots), the expression of political ideology on social media, and the influence of social media on political mobilization and social movements.
