Biography

Joel is studying for a DPhil in Applied Mathematics at the University of Oxford's Mathematical Institute under the supervision of Prof Doyne Farmer. During his undergraduate physics studies, he developed an interest in statistical mechanics, complexity science and data science, and in particular the application of these topics to the social sciences. His research currently involves developing and calibrating agent-based models of opinion dynamics and using natural language processing and machine learning methods to extract meaningful signals from organic sources of sequential data e.g. social media.
