Portfolio

Below you can find brief descriptions of and data visualizations for various projects I have worked on during my PhD and work experiences.

Academic Research Projects

Data visualizations I have created for various academic and independent projects.

Data visualization I created for a project where I investigated the relationship between linguistic coordination — the phenomenon wherein one person's linguistic style starts to resemble another person's — and decision-making quality in groups with newcomers. 

The two figures displayed here show how the degree to which old-timers (figure on the left) and newcomers (figure on the right) coordinate their language to the rest of the group affects the group's likelihood of making the correct decision. 

What these figures demonstrate is that, when old-timers coordinate to the group, the group is more likely to make the correct decision. However, the opposite is true for newcomers: the more they coordinate linguistically to the rest of the group, the less likely the group is to make the correct decision as a whole.

Figure from Thorson, Dumitru, & West, 2021, created using R Studio. This figure shows coefficients of physiological linkage between participants in a group decision-making task. Physiological linkage indicates the degree to which one person's physiology at one time point influences another person's physiology at the following time point. "Receiver" coefficients indicate the extent to which the person's physiology was impacted by the rest of the group members' physiology, whereas "sender" coefficients indicate the extent to which the person's physiology influenced the other group members' physiology. For more information about this model and visualization, see the full paper HERE. 

YouGov

Examples of charts created for various YouGov articles using DataWrapper and R Studio.

Supervised Learning

In this project I completed for a Data Science class at NYU, I used supervised learning to predict participants' self-reported social class from their ratings prior to and at the end of a social interaction with two other people.
