Welcoming Robert Bond to OSU
As most of you know, the School of Communication recently hired Robert Bond, ABD at UC-San Diego, for our position in social network analysis. Robert will be joining us this coming fall. Robert is lead author of what must be one of the (if not THE) largest random assignment experiment on humans in history -- a study conducted in conjunction with Facebook in which feeds were experimentally manipulated on election day in 2010. The study was published this last fall in the journal Nature. Robert's research thus links not only to social networks more generally, but also to the work we do in COPS. I encourage you to welcome Robert to OSU @ firstname.lastname@example.org!
