Personal profile

Research Interests

My work is focused on understanding the expression and impact of emotion in online communication. To this end, my recent work has been on systems to detect and analyze insults, profanity and personal attacks in online forums with a recent focus on the impact of anonymity on online communities. My work in the space of sentiment analysis has led me to explore a series of other related challenges including domain specificity and sentiment analysis through many models of emotion beyond positive/negative/neutral classification.
