ATSE 2016 New Fellow: Dr Cecile Paris FTSE
Dr Paris has translated deep knowledge in computer science to solving real-life problems in the social sciences. She has developed an understanding of how people communicate, how they interact within information environments and make sense of big data. This has major impacts in social science and the digital economy. One application developed by Dr Paris and her team is enabling government departments to monitor views of the services provided. Another is helping emergency services to use social media messages to identify unexpected events and unfolding disasters.
