ABSTRACT / Does homophily help or hinder minorities' visibility and position? How do minorities mix with majorities in online and face-to-face networks, and what societal and algorithmic consequences do these mixing patterns have on their visibility? These are the questions that I plan to address in this talk drawn from my recent and ongoing research.

She is interested in applying methods from network science and computational modeling to address societal issues that affect underrepresented groups.
