NCASD Lab Member Richard Gardner Receives NSF Graduate Research Fellowship

Published on July 31, 2019 by

Congratulations to NCASD Lab Member and Sociology graduate student Richard Gardner, who will be beginning a new National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship in Fall 2019.  The NSF GRFP is a highly competitive fellowship program, which selects students based on a combination of their prior record of accomplishments, promise for excellence in their research field, and their proposed plan of research.  Gardner’s research, which examines deviance and malfeasant behavior online, has already produced intriguing preliminary findings into how social influence bot networks exploit news stories involving storms, fires, earthquakes, and other natural hazards to gain attention and pose as collections of legitimate news sites, some of which was presented to both practitioners and other members of the research community at the 2019 Natural Hazards Workshop in Broomfield, CO.  We congratulate Gardner on his achievement, and look forward to his many contributions in the years ahead.
