Yukun Yang (陽 玉堃)
I am a Data Visualization Research Fellow at the Boston University Center for Antiracist Research. Previously, I was a Data Scientist at the Police Foundation. I graduated from the master's program in Information Science offered by the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. My research interests widely across the field of Information Science and Computational Social Science. Specifically, I am interested in interdisciplinary research that investigates social or collective behaviors on social media in a computational fashion. I aim at tracking and modeling online communities with data mining approaches and interpreting and understanding them with social sciences theories.
Before attending the graduate school at UNC-Chapel Hill, I received my bachelor's degree in Library Science from Northwest University .
