Mimie is a researcher on the BOTFIND project. She studied for her PhD (currently near submission) in Computer Science at the University of Southampton, in the Web and Internet Science group, supervised by Prof Luc Moreau and Prof Susan Halford. Her PhD focuses on causal inference for estimating the social influence of online communications on real-world outcomes, at the individual and at the collective level. Her PhD research was honoured with the Best Poster award at the 2016 International Conference on Social Informatics in Seattle, Washington.
She holds an MSc in Operational Research from the University of Southampton, and a BA (Hons) in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge.
Her research focus is on developing computational models and methods for understanding and analysing patterns of behaviour in online interactions, informed by the social sciences. Her research interests relate to the areas of online social influence, causal inference, social network analysis, computational social science, and data science.
Mimie is a member of the ACM, and of the London Computational Social Science Initiative.
