About

Dr. Mimie Liotsiou was a postdoctoral researcher on the Computational Propaganda project.

Her research focus is on developing computational models, methods, and tools for analysing patterns of behaviour in online interactions, with a particular interest in the impact of online communications, disinformation, and propaganda. She develops and applies AI methods from the fields of causal inference and of machine learning, as well as data science and social network analysis methods, while also drawing upon findings from the social sciences. Her research interests relate to the areas of online social influence, causal inference, social network analysis, computational social science, and data science.

She received her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Southampton, UK, where she was a member of the Web and Internet Science group. Her PhD focused on causal inference for estimating the social influence of online communications on real-world outcomes, at the individual and at the collective level. Her PhD research was honoured with the Best Poster award for the poster accompanying her full-length paper (in proceedings) at the 2016 International Conference on Social Informatics in Seattle, Washington.

She holds a PhD in Computer Science and an MSc in Operational Research from the University of Southampton, and a BA (Hons) in Computer Science from the University of Cambridge.
