Matthew Bui

By |

Dr. Bui integrates interdisciplinary, sociotechnical, and community-based research methods and approaches to explore the opportunities for, and obstacles to, racial and data justice within society. Bui’s research primarily examines: 1) how individuals and communities call attention to—and subvert—issues of power and inequality within and through data and data science; and 2) the impacts of digital media and data-driven technologies within Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) communities. In all, Dr. Bui seeks to advance both critical frameworks as well as novel data-driven methodologies that engage with the intersections of racial and data justice.

Dr. Hemphill studies conversations in social media and aims to promote just access to social media spaces and their data. She uses computational approaches to modeling political topics, predicting and addressing toxicity in online discussions, and tracing linguistic adaptations among extremists. She also studies digital data curation and is especially interested in ways to measure and model data reuse so that we can make informed decisions about how to allocate data resources.
