Michael Zhao. I am currently in the middle of my PhD at the MIT Sloan School of Management. As an aspiring computational social scientist, I take advantage of modern computational tools to discover novel insights from big, messy data, with a focus on answering causal questions. My current research looks at estimating the value that social media creates for online content producers. Prior to my starting my PhD, I completed my master's degree in Economics at NYU.
