About Us

At the SocVis Lab we use Computer and Information Sciences to study online individual and social behavior from an interdisciplinary view stand. We are interested in understanding how individuals and groups of people use online technology, and also in developing algorithms and applications to enhance the people's abilities to exploit those technologies. We focus on the following areas of research:

We use both quantitative and qualitative approaches in our research. Among the quantitative approaches we make extensive use of data mining algorithms and statistical analysis on off-line datasets to discover patterns of individual and social behaviors. We also perform user studies in order to test online our findings over off-line data analysis, where we combine qualitative and quantitave analysis.
