Welcome to the Computational Social Science Lab!

Computational Social Science leverages digital tools to learn something about people, politics, and the societal impact of technology. How do social media platforms change our political landscape? When do people trust each other online? Do large language models influence people's opinions? We collect and curate large digital datasets in the context of such questions, and evaluate them using approaches from statistical inference to machine learning. We also develop our own prototypes to understand how future technologies may affect people.
