Current Teaching

Prospective Students and Research Assistants

I am currently recruiting exceptional students to work on projects related to the use of massive datasets to understand patterns of social and economic behavior. Representative projects can be found on my website and through the Data-Intensive Development Lab website. While preference is given to PhD students at U.C. Berkeley, in rare cases opportunities may exist for students at other institutions, undergraduates, and non-students.

If you are considering applying to the PhD program at the School of Information, please read this note first.

If you are a currently-enrolled student or prospective postdoc, and are interested in working with me, please follow these instructions.
