Dr Luke Sloan is Deputy Director of the Social Data Science Lab (http://socialdatalab.net/) and his work on understanding who uses Twitter through the development of demographic proxies and data linkage is internationally recognised. His background is in Political Science but his interests are primarily methodological and span the Social Sciences, hence his focus on representation, geography, quantitative analysis and modelling, exploring data linkage and social surveys. He works closely with external agencies and government as an expert member of the Social Media Analytics Review and Information Group (SMARIG) and his work has been used in GSR guidance on how Twitter data can be used to augment social research.
In this session the academic panel of speakers and break-out leaders will answer questions that have been submitted anonymously to the student committee during the course of the day.
All those attending are invited to join us for drinks and dinner in a venue tbc in Aberdeen City Centre.
