Munmun De Choudhury is an assistant professor in the
School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of
Technology where she directs the Social Dynamics and
Wellbeing Lab. Prior to joining Georgia Tech, De Choudhury was a faculty associate with the Berkman Klein Center
for Internet and Society at Harvard and a postdoc at
Microsoft Research, following obtaining her PhD in computer science from Arizona State University. De Choudhury’s research interests are in computational social science.
With her students and collaborators, De Choudhury focuses on developing computational methods to assess, understand, and improve personal and societal mental health
from online social interactions.
Emre Kiciman is a principal researcher at Microsoft
Research. Kiciman’s research interests include social computing and computational social science, causal inference
methods, and information retrieval. His current work focuses on causal analysis of large-scale social media timelines,
using social data to support individuals and policymakers
across a variety of domains, and more broadly on the implications of AI on people and society. Kiciman’s past research
includes entity-linking methods for social media and the
web, deployed in the Bing search engine; and foundational
work on applying machine learning to fault management in
large-scale internet services.
