Research interests

My passion is in technology, economics, data and computational approaches to get exciting insights about human behaviour. Broadly speaking, my research sits under the headline: how does technological progress affect societies and vice versa? What behavioural patterns that were disguised previously can now be researched as people reveal their choices through the use of technology? How can we use collected data to improve operational outcomes of not for profit organizations by using Machine Learning ? There are social issues that need to be addressed on an individual level, but I believe it is possible to impact the world on an aggregate level by using data.
