Updated: Nov 20, 2021
Dr. Argyris is a recipient of a 2021 Diversity Research Network (DRN)’s Launch Award ($4,500). The title of Dr. Argyris research is “Development of a Machine-Learning Algorithm for Identifying Topics of Pro- and Anti-Vaccine Rhetoric on Social Media.”
In this project, Dr. Argyris will develop an innovative informatics technique that improves the current limitations of mining prominent topics from online discussions. This new technique allows for accurate identifications of topics discussed on social media, thereby facilitating the understanding of underserved populations’ health discussions. This better understanding will, in turn, be translated into effective interventions, health messaging, patient-driven care, all of which will contribute to reducing health disparities.
