City alumna explores the visualisation of disinformation networks
Alexa Pavliuc, a 2020 graduate on City’s MSc in Data Science programme, has been exploring the design and use of temporal networks for visualizing disinformation operations by way of DisInfoVis.
Her work has been published through a EuroVIS 2020 poster and two articles on Medium: the first on her MSc Research, DisInfoVis: How to Understand Networks of Disinformation Through Visualization; and the second, based on additional work undertaken with the Mozilla Foundation, which visualizes six Twitter-based disinformation operations, Watch six decade-long disinformation operations unfold in six minutes.
City’s Data Science Institute facilitated a stipend which made it possible for Alexa to complete much of her work.
She has embarked on a DPhil in Social Data Science at the University of Oxford, where she will continue to study networks of disinformation.
