Generally, I’m interested in the ways both activist and extremist identities and ideologies are built and maintained using various social media platforms. Specifically, my dissertation will examine how politically motivated actors moralize acts of harm (i.e. political violence). I employ semi-supervised and unsupervised learning methods to examine text as data, particularly from sources such as Twitter, YouTube and Gab.
After UTSA, I spent a few years working as a Research Analyst in the Institutional Research department of a large community college in Texas.
