Survey Research Proposal

In Spring 2020, the culminating project in my Research Methods course was a proposal for survey-based research, including thorough literature review, analysis plans, user testing, and complete questionnaire. My proposal was titled “Exploring Intersectional Identities and Gender Self-Expression Across Social Media Platforms.”

Twitter Data Analysis

In Fall 2020, the final group project in Problem Solving With Data asked us to use newly-learned R and Python skills to analyze tweets to answer self-selected research questions aimed at addressing some kind of social good. My two-person team opted to look into Disability Twitter, a topic I proposed. I also pulled, filtered, and merged the data, as well as performing a large chunk of the content analysis and writing the corresponding sections of the report.

While there are many aspects of the analysis I would do differently under other circumstances (see p. 28), it was a great opportunity to match my interest in/knowledge of a Twitter community with developing technical skills.
