Hope is a new MAS student in C3. She is interested in the spread and impact of ideas through information and media networks. Some topics of interest include how the language we use online divides us, how conspiratorial language propagates through social networks, how language in social networks interplays with broadcast media, and how NLP techniques can help us better answer these kinds of questions. Her background includes applying NLP techniques towards computational social science questions in gender, multilingual social media, and the legal field. Prior to coming to MIT, she studied Symbolic Systems at Stanford, followed by a master’s in Social Data Science at Oxford. She likes skiing, yoga, hiking, and rollerblading.
