is a group of researchers who study, analyze, and build different aspects of social systems (e.g. social web systems like Twitter, Facebook), including their security and privacy. By understanding and measuring complex networks, we try and build solutions for social good. Our work primarily derives from Data Science, Computational Social Science, Social Computing, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing.

What's New!
