Annie Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and Medical Education. Her interests in data science and visualization focus on the representation of complex and multidimensional psychological and social processes, and in particular, how we can build visual and interactive tools that facilitate exploration of the richness of these processes.
In health contexts, her work includes natural language processing and visualization of discussion context from health-related online communities, Twitter, and other types of social media. In the digital humanities, her work is focused on building visual interfaces to explore historical documents, facilitating interpretation of phenomena within the social and political contexts in which they occurred.
Chen’s other research interests include change in cognitive representations of illness, health and wellness over time; interactions in online communities; and differences in the practice of research across disciplines.
