I’m happy to announce that I will become an assistant professor in Computer Science at the University of Notre Dame. After I complete my postdoc position in 2021-22, I will join the Department of Computer Science and Engineering and the Department of IT, Analytics, and Operations (Courtesy). I will continue my research in the intersections of data science, computational social science, and HCI.
Our paper “Do I know you? The effects of social capital on self-assembled groups” has been accepted for presentation at the virtual 81st Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management taking place 29 July – 4 August 2021.
This fall 2021, I will become a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Science of Science and Innovation (CSSI) at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. I will be working on teams with Prof. Dashun Wang.
Our paper “Do I know you? The effects of social capital on self-assembled groups” has been selected for the virtual 71st Annual ICA Conference, Engaging the Essential Work of Care: Communication, Connectedness, and Social Justice, to be held on 27-31 May 2021.
I will be joining the Snap Inc. Research team this fall 2020. My mentor will be Maarten Bos, Lead Research Scientist.
Sharing some wonderful news – We have a paper accepted to CSCW 2020!! Congrats to lead author Diego Gómez-Zará and his co-authors Dr. Leslie DeChurch and Dr. Noshir Contractor.
Congratulations to Diego who is awarded the National Science Foundation (NSF) Doctoral Dissertation Research Grant through the Decision, Risk, and Management Sciences program! His research will focus on assembling teams supported by augmented intelligence, advised by Dr. Noshir Contractor.
