Alexander T. J. Barron
I am a PhD candidate in Informatics at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA, in the Center for Complex Networks and Systems. I research language use with respect to social movements, politics, and group formation.
In the past, I helped smash particles together.
I enjoy making music and music videos.
In the future I will smash data analysis together with text and music to measure cultural innovation.
In particular: developing measurements of innovation and the effectiveness of new content’s innovation in context.
Does identity inspire group formation, or vice versa? Measurement of these interrelated concepts using language as data.
