I’m a doctoral student in Human Centered Computing at Georgia Tech. I currently work in the Social Dynamics and Well Being lab and am advised by Munmun De Choudhury. My research area is in online deviant communities, specifically creating computational methodologies to find these communities and assess their health and well-being. My community of interest at the moment is pro-eating disorder communities, a group that believes eating disorders are an acceptable alternative lifestyle rather than a dangerous mental illness.
In addition to my academic interests, I’m also very passionate about debate and oratory (especially high school debate), powerlifting, and cooking. I occasionally do freelance web development work.
Contact me: I’m interested in chatting about research opportunities in the social computing research space. Please email me at schancellor3 [at] gatech [period] edu to chat.

In addition, I’m thrilled that both of our papers – “#thyghgapp: Instagram Content Moderation and Lexical Variation in Pro-Eating Disorder Communities” and “Quantifying and Predicting Mental Illness Severity in Online Pro-Eating Disorder Communities” received Honorable Mention awards at CSCW 2016!
