We are recruiting Interdisciplinary Design and Media PhD students! Our group's mission is to use tools from data science and design to promote educational, economic, and social well-being by fostering inclusive connections across lines of difference. Some current projects include:

  1. Developing new data-informed technologies to reduce school segregation and foster more equitable educational opportunities and outcomes (more here on early work)

  2. Designing new tools for engaging with online media to reduce polarization and help make the internet a more reflective and thoughtful place (more here on early work)

  3. Using data to help learning platforms better connect unemployed/underemployed individuals with life-changing careers (more here — see "Generation" on the Adult Learning Track tab)

Students with a passion for these or related topics and a background in at least one of the following are encouraged to apply: computational social science, data science/machine learning, experiment design and analysis, human-computer interaction, or human-centered design in community settings. Applications are due December 1st, 2022. Please email with any questions or comments. We look forward to meeting you!
