My research interests lie in the field of computational methods and sociological analysis of culture and communication.
I am interested in computational and digital techniques, tools and methods for data mining, text mining, natural language processing, and web scraping. I mainly rely on R coding for my studies, but I also use other software to perform specific analyses. Sometimes I mix quantitative and qualitative methods like digital ethnography, and more traditional interviews, surveys and observations.
From a substantive perspective, I am interested in communication, information and problematic information in the online environment, digital activism and controversial movements, such as the anti-vaccine movement, the anti-gender movement, the men’s right movement, vegans and animal rights movement, and religious groups.
