social network analysis
Social network analysis (SNA) can allow us to investigate social structures online through the use of networks and math graph theory. While it has been widely used in the counter-intelligence and law enforcement communities. It has also been applied to understanding online behavior by individuals, organizations, and between websites.1
I am interested in how social network analysis can be used to study systems and institutions of oppression and how such systems and their networks not only reflect their mechanisms in the physical world but further perpetuate oppressive tactics in the Web.
I have used social network analysis as an interdisciplinary technical researcher at the University of Southampton for pilot study projects with the Web Science Institute & Faculty of Social Sciences. Look forward to sharing more once the studies are released.*
