Primary research focus: I study how individuals retrieve words from memory, particularly by focusing on the way words (and language more generally) is structured/organized in the mind. I use tools from the network and cognitive sciences.

Areas of potential collaboration or skill-building: network science tools, human cognition (particularly language-related), grant writing, R programming for simulation, network analysis, data visualization

Kenneth Joseph  
Assistant Professor 
Computer Science 
School of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Primary research focus: My research focuses on obtaining a better understanding of the dynamics and cognitive representations of stereotypes and prejudice, and their interrelationships with sociocultural structure. In my work, I leverage a variety of machine learning/NLP methods, agent-based modeling strategies and socio-cognitive theories.

Area(s) of interest: Online Misinformation, Modeling Social Stereotypes, Textual Analysis, Natural Language Processing, Social Media
