 PhD Research Interests
 In my PhD research, I study peculiarities of collective human behavior and try to build theories of large online social systems (e.g., online social networks, the blogosphere, flickr, etc.) by examining their reflections in voluminous datasets (e.g., social interactions, blogging, social tagging, etc.)-theories that could explain certain phenomena and social processes like behavior, influence, and diffusion.
