Yara is a PhD candidate and a Gates Scholar. Originally from Kyiv, Ukraine, she studied mathematics and psychology at New York University, where she used natural language processing and other data science methods to study social processes online with Tessa West and Jay Van Bavel. As a PhD student in psychology, she uses a combination of data science approaches (especially natural language processing and language models) and behavioral experiments to learn more about how, when, and why social media facilitate political division or unity.
