About the Lab

Core Research Themes

The Social Media Intelligence Lab (SMILe) brings together leading scholars to harness the potential of social media data.  Integrating macro-scalar breadth micro-scalar specifics, SMILe adopts recursive techniques to integrate big data approaches (data mining and machine learning) and thick-data contextual approaches (netnography and cultural hermeneutics).  Researchers discover useful patterns of social media and provide insights for decision-making for the most pressing world problems including sustainability, democracy, and public health. 
  • Multi-scalar "wicked" problems and their manifestation at global, regional, and local scales
  • Diversity among and between discursive communities and their interlocutors
  • Improving public health of vulnerable populations
  • Sustainable social media culture and policy suggestions
  • Social Media and democracy
  • Ethical use of data and technology
  • Transdisciplinary Co-Mentoring
