About Scott Hale
I am a Data Scientist at the Oxford Internet Institute of the University of Oxford. I develop and apply techniques from computer science to research questions in both computer science and the social sciences. I am particularly interested in the area of human-computer interaction, the spread of information between speakers of different languages online, and the roles of bilingual Internet users. I am also interested in collective action and politics more generally. I maintain my personal website and blog at http://scott.hale.us/.
