We are a team of academic researchers who utilize web and social media data to understand important problems in public health.
Our team originally formed in 2015 under our NIH R01, “Supplementing Survey-Based Analyses of Group Vaccination Narratives and Behaviors Using Social Media”, which uses computer algorithms, demographic and geolocation identifiers, and the scale of Big Data, to combine existing survey techniques with Twitter conversations about vaccination.
In the past several years, our team as grown to consider other domains in public health.
This website serves as a reference for resources and publications related to this topic, and hosts data and publications created by our group.
