I am a quantitative researcher studying the dissemination and exchange of persuasive information at the Heinz College of Carnegie Mellon University. I design randomized experiments, quasi-experimental studies, and develop natural language processing and graph mining methods to empirically characterize the role of mental shortcuts in scenarios involving persuasive communication, such as online deliberation and scholarly peer review. I am advised by Dokyun Lee and George Chen, and my research is supported by a McKinsey & Company Ph.D. Fellowship.
