Research

My research focuses on studying how users are consuming news and information on online social media and in evaluating the role played by automated retrieval algorithms, like search and recommendation systems, in shaping the users' news & information consumption. I have developed frameworks for measuring the bias and diversity in the news and information that users are consuming via algorithmic recommendation and search systems on web and social media platforms.
