2024 Fellow

Mansi Sood

PhD Institution
Carnegie Mellon University

As a 2024 Schmidt Science Fellow, Mansi will pivot to algorithm and incentive design for social networks, focusing on mitigating the spread of misinformation, improving algorithmic transparency, and fostering healthy discourse in online communities.

By transforming how people consume and share information, online social media has emerged as an instrument for shaping public opinion with a direct bearing on critical issues, including public health and safety.

Mansi is interested in studying how we can improve transparency in how content gets filtered and propagated in online information ecosystems and design interventions to ensure equitable access to information from diverse and reliable sources.
