Title: Using math to examine far-right extremism and online political opinion

Speaker: Joseph Tien, OSU

Abstract: I will discuss some ongoing projects studying the network structure of far-right groups on Twitter.  A particular case study will be the Twitter conversation following the #UniteTheRight rally in August 2017, Charlottesville.  Some basic tools from network science and data science will be presented, and opportunities for research will be discussed.

Note: This is part of the Invitations to Mathematics lecture series given each year in Autumn Semester. Pre-candidacy PhD students can sign up for this lecture series by registering for one or two credit hours of Math 6193 with Professor Henri Moscovici.
