Pagbati Dr. Mikaela Fudolig.#MotivationMondayMy name is Mikaela Fudolig, and I’m a Pinoy researcher in computational social science! I use computational techniques to understand human behavior through digital traces (think tweets, GPS location data, call detail records) and cultural artifacts (like books and songs!). Currently, I’m a postdoc at the University of Vermont in the US. I used to be a postdoc at the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics in Korea, and I studied physics at UP Diliman for undergrad and grad school.I have always been interested in interdisciplinary studies, but I didn’t know my research interests fit into a well-defined discipline until I went for postdoctoral training. Computational social science is a very young field – the first International Conference on Computational Social Science (IC2S2) was held only in 2015! – and it’s rapidly growing due to the increasing availability of large datasets and cheap computing power.💡Why computational social science? Human behavior is a fascinating complex thing, especially in how a single individual’s actions have downstream consequences in society. How have people’s posts, comments, shares and likes affect whom their friends voted for? What makes fake news believable, and how do our social networks facilitate its spread? How does human mobility – something we can observe through location information from phone location data, public transport ticket sales, and origin-destination matrices from ridesharing services, among others – affect COVID transmission rates? If these are questions that you find interesting, then computational social science is likely for you! ... See MoreSee Less
