  • About Me

  • Publications

  • Research

My research interests are in the areas of social media analytics, disaster communications, library automation, philosophy of information sourcing, information sources and systems. My thesis is geared towards developing mechanisms that can enable disaster or emergency responders analyze social media conversations to detect emergency preparedness among the populace as well as predict situational awareness. I am of the opinion that disaster communicators can use machine learning to analyze online conversations to predict and categorize the messages that could point out critical success factors as well as the direction of the narratives surrounding an extreme event.
