Research Assistant Professor, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University

I am a Research Assistant Professor at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. My principal research interest lies in the area of data mining/machine learning, computational social science and science of science. I study the link between the social network and leadership attainment and how social network can help women to achieve placement in leadership. Based on organizational theory, I develop a model for estimating a terror group’s future lethality by inferring from latent variables its hidden capabilities and resources. This model has an unique early warning signals. I also test the ability of artificial intelligence to address the replication problem in science. The goal is to demonstrate how AI can address replication problems at scale in ways that current methods cannot and can advance research by combining human and machine intelligence.
