About the Speaker:

Chris Bail is the Douglas and Ellen Lowey Associate Professor of Sociology and Public Policy at Duke.

In 2017, he was one of 30 academics recognized worldwide by a prestigious Andrew Carnegie Fellowship. His work has also been recognized by awards from the American Sociological Association, the Association for Research on Non-Profit Organizations and Voluntary Action, the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion, and the Society for Study of Social Problems, and supported by the National Science Foundation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Russell Sage Foundation. His research has also been covered by major media outlets such as NBC NewsNational Public Radio, and the Washington Post. Chris is also passionate about training the next generation of computational social scientists. He is the co-organizer of the 2017 Summer Institute in Computational Social Science at Princeton University and a founding member of Duke's Interdisciplinary Data Science Program. Dr. Bail is currently studying the community-level predictors of violent extremism using Google search data, and how social networks influence political polarization on Twitter.
