Topic 6: Community Data Science Approaches to Gang Violence Prevention

Desmond Upton Patton, Associate Professor, Columbia University Social Work

March 7, 2019 (12-1 p.m.)
Location: To be announced

Dr. Patton focuses on community violence and social media, and the ways in which youth and young adults of color navigate violence in their communities and on social media platforms. His research utilizes qualitative and computational methods—e.g., interview-based studies, collaborative projects with data scientists—to examine how youth and young adults living in violent urban neighborhoods experience, navigate and respond to community violence in their neighborhood as well on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
