Ph.D. Student

Machine Learning & Statistics

I am a Ph.D. Student in Computer Science where my primary research involves identifying structure in multi-relational social networks under the supervision of Dr. Derek Greene. My research interests include machine learning, social network analysis, temporal graph embeddings, cultural analytics, natural language processing, time series analysis, and anomaly detection.

Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University

During my summer semester in 2018, I joined the Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University where I contributed to three projects. One on online media manipulation, a second concerened with harmful speech online, and a third where I worked with the founder of the Berkman Klein Center, Charles Nesson, to further develop an online discussion platform for the Harvard Law course JuryX.

Nation, Genre, and Gender

I am also a part of the ‘Nation, Genre, and Gender’ project, an interdisciplinary collaboration between the Insight Centre and the Humanities Institute at UCD. The aim of this project is to study a collection of Irish and British novels from the 19th Century using both quantitative and qualitative methodologies in order to examine these works from new perspectives.

Curtiss-Wright Avionics & Electronics

Finally, as well as conducting my own research and collaborating with the Humanities Institute between 2016-2017, I was also involved in an industry partnership with Curtiss-Wright. My work involved implementing a system which could detect anomalies and classify, in real-time, faults that may occur within complex aviation systems.
