Will Hamilton, Stanford University
I am a second-year computer science PhD student at Stanford, working jointly with Dan Jurafsky (Stanford NLP Group) and Jure Leskovec (Stanford Network Analysis Project). I use computational linguistics, data mining, and machine learning methods to develop large-scale models of human behavior. My current projects focus on quantifying the social dynamics of large groups through language change. Prior to joining Stanford, I pursued a MSc at McGill University in Montreal, where I built scalable models for complex time-series analysis. I tend to spend my spare time rock climbing, cooking, and reading the news.
