I’m a Ph.D. candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania (defense scheduled in June 2019). My scholarship is at the intersection of computational social science, visual communication, and message effects. My research applies cutting-edge computer vision methods to investigate the production, diffusion, and effects of visual media, an increasingly prevalent component of today’s digital media environment. My works have been published in leading venues both in communication and human-computer interaction, including the Journal of Communication, the International Journal of Communication, Public Understanding of Science, and the Proceedings of ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems. I received my M.A. in communication from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
