Bennett Kleinberg Maximilian Mozes and Dr Toby Davies

Dr Bennett Kleinberg is an assistant professor at the Department of Security and Crime Science and the Dawes Centre for Future Crime at University College London. He is interested in understanding crime and security problems with computational techniques and in behavioral inferences from text data. Maximilian Mozes is a Ph.D. student at University College London supervised by Lewis Griffin (Department of Computer Science) and Bennett Kleinberg (Department of Security and Crime Science). His research interests lie at the intersection of natural language processing and crime science and his doctoral studies focus on assessing the vulnerabilities of statistical learning techniques operating on textual data. Dr Toby Davies is an assistant professor in the Department of Security and Crime Science at University College London. His interests lie in the quantitative and computational analysis of crime, with particular focus on spatial analysis and the role of networks in crime.

Making Text Data Accessible for Social Science

More textual data than ever before are available to computational social scientists—be it in the form of digitized books, communication traces on social media platforms, or digital scientific articles. Researchers in academia and industry increasingly use text data to understand human behavior and to measure patterns in language.
