Prospective PhD Students

I'm always on the lookout for students who wish to work in the areas of computational social science, data mining, social media, and so on. Admitted students will be fully funded.

Tips for Contacting Me

Before you contact me, please take some time to understand what I do. It will particularly draw my attention if you could suggest reasonable extensions to or critique my previous work. When you are contacting me, either via email or face-to-face, it is encouraged to highlight your previous project/research experience.

  • If you are not at W&M already, an informative e-mail that explains why you are a researcher I shall work with has the best chance of getting a reply.
  • Current W&M students interested in working with me are welcome to stop by my office and speak to me.
