We are interested in understanding how
information is organised, used, and misused.

In our research, we develop new computational tools to study the media we produce and consume, the beliefs we hold, the language we use, as well as the opinions, ideas, and narratives we propagate, mixing data science with theories about human behaviour, culture, and society.

In this process, we draw a lot from computational social science, cultural analytics, complex systems, as well as from communication studies, sociology, psychology, and cultural evolution.
