Bedoor K. AlShebli
I am an Assistant Professor in Computational Social Science at New York University, Abu Dhabi. I received my PhD in Interdisciplinary Engineering from Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, and my MSc in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
My research focuses on using data science techniques to study social phenomena, with particular emphasis on Science of Science. I am interested in the social and economic benefits of diversity, as well as the dynamics of social interaction and cohesion, and social science problems in the contexts of data science, big data, and machine learning. My work has been published in major academic journals, including Nature Communications, Science Advances, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Cumulatively, my work contributes to the fields of computational social science, data science, and machine learning.
