NCASD Lab Member Rick Gardner’s Work Featured

Published on August 2, 2019 by

NCSD lab member Rick Gardner’s work with the NSF-funded HEROIC project has recently been featured by the UCI School of Social Sciences, in a write-up that discusses his findings on Twitter Social Influence Bot Networks, and the role played by this work in his recent receipt of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship.  Gardner’s research, results from which will be presented at the upcoming annual meeting of the American Sociological Association, is providing a new window on the way that bot networks are using information on natural hazards to masquerade as legitimate news sites.  In addition to HEROIC support for data collection, Gardner’s GRFP award will help support his graduate study as he continues his work in this important area.
