Research Interests

I build and critically evaluate human-centered AI for high-risk health behaviors in online communities. Using machine learning, I use digital trace data from millions of interactions on social media to identify high-risk behaviors. At the same time, I critically evaluate these predictive approaches and develop more ethical and compassionate research practices for computer science. I’m especially interested in dangerous behaviors like pro-eating disorder, opioid use disorder and recovery, and suicidal ideation and crisis.
