Papers, Presentations, and Projects

Personal Projects

  • Exploring Personal Ads in Online Classifieds - This analysis is still in progress; I began it to explore text mining and classification algorithms (and chose the topic because of its potential for amusement).

  • 2012 Election Visualization - I worked with Dianne Cook, Andee Kaplan, and Eric Hare to visualize data from the 2012 presidential election. I focused on analyzing political contributions, campaign spending, and voting technology.
