My my main interests involve social systems informatics. The this interdisciplinary program in Social Systems Informatics is directed towards advancing and disseminating computational approaches involving the measurement, modeling, and testing of how social interactions affect a broad range of human outcomes. These social interactions range from face-to-face, media communications, or other social actions and are often massive in size. Key outcomes involve major characteristics of our lives related to education, health, work, and play; attitudes, behaviors, performances in these areas are not simply products of individual factors but are fundamentally shaped by the social contexts and interactions in which people live. Computationally, social systems informatics relies on methods in system science, including social network analysis, agent based modeling, data mining, intelligent data analysis, and biostatistical methods, to study how individual and social system interactions affect health and other outcomes.
