This is an emerging research area targeting to solve social science theories by using computation, and most notably with Big Data and Machine learning techniques.
In these days, my research motivation is to find some insights by analyzing Twitter data to understand how English people react to Brexit referendum. There are various researches already made about this topic, and most of them are done by universities in England such as Imperial College London and the University of Bristol. I found it as a quite interesting research topic since social media is an important environment to present our ideas to the community and there is a need for more research to understand people’s opinions. I will give more detailed information about my study in the upcoming weeks. If you have any recommendation for me, please feel free to send me an email.
Good news, I joined to Data Science Research Group of Politecnico Milano as Research Fellow. At the moment, this is a position with a temporary contract since we need to see if I could contribute well to the research of this community. My advisor will be Marco Brambilla, who is known for his studies in Web Science and Software Engineering.
I am very pleased with becoming a member(even as a temporary researcher) of this valuable group. I believe I will gain a broad knowledge by making research with my professors and I will be able to solve a significant research problem in my Ph.D. thesis.

Today, I participated in Welcome Day for new Ph.D. students of Politecnico Milano. We were nearly 300 new Ph.D. students from different backgrounds, from Architecture to Industrial Design, and from Mechanical Engineer to Information and Technology. The dean of Ph.D. school had a great presentation and I think the following slide was the summary of all possible suggestions for Ph.D. students. Thanks to everybody for their unlimited support and kindness.
