Carleton Connects: Professor David Liben-Nowell

Missed the Carleton Connects: The Weitz Center for Creativity Webinar?  You can experience it here!

For more information on social media and data, Professor Liben-Nowell suggests visiting "My Biased Coin" at http://mybiasedcoin.blogspot.com/.  To learn more about the Carleton Department of Computer Science, please visit https://apps.carleton.edu/curricular/cs/.

As more and more of our day-to-day activities have moved online, we have begun to leave digital traces of decisions and preferences -- moods, friendships, preferences among potential dates -- that had previously been all but invisible.   Join Professor David Liben-Nowell as he presents: "Tie game: Making connections with social networks".  He will describe a few highlights of the emerging research area of computational social science and talk briefly about how current students are exploring this topic in the Carleton curriculum.  At the end of the program, you will have the opportunity to ask your own questions.

This call took place Wednesday, April 18 from 12-1 CT.

For questions, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni-office@carleton.edu

David Liben-Nowell
Assistant Professor of Computer Science

Liben-Nowell is conducting research on social networks, broadly divided into two categories: extracting interesting information from large- scale real-world social networks and developing mathematical models of social networks (and proving that they reproduce features observed in the real world). Liben-Nowell has previously worked on problems in computational biology, complexity of games and peer-to-peer systems. He earned his Ph.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2005, writing his dissertation on An Algorithmic Approach to Social Networks. He conducted his undergraduate work at Cornell University.
