Teaching

I am honored to teach undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs, and people outside of universities about a range of issues in social science, and I am particularly passionate about introducing people to the field of computational social science.

 

SUMMER INSTITUTES IN COMPUTATIONAL SOCIAL SCIENCE

If you are a graduate student, post-doc, or junior faculty member, you may be interested in the Summer Institutes in Computational Social Science that I co-organize with Matt Salganik. These events are designed to provide free training to graduate students, post-docs, and junior faculty members at more than nine locations around the world. Visit the link above to see all lecture slides, codes, and video from Matt, me, and a number of fantastic guest lectures.

FREE TEXT AS DATA COURSE


I have also produced a free, open-source Text as Data class for people interested in learning about how to scrape data from the internet and analyze it using automated text analysis techniques such as topic models, text networks, or word embeddings.

 

PUBLIC SCHOLARSHIP

I am also passionate about improving public understanding of sociology and regularly give talks to companies, non-profit organizations, and government agencies.
