Tim Althoff PhD Candidate in Computer Science

Hi! I'm a PhD candidate in the Computer Science Department at Stanford University where I work with Jure Leskovec and am part of SNAP, the InfoLab, and the Mobilize Center.

I enjoy analyzing large-scale traces of human activity to learn more about human behavior.

My research develops data science methods based on social network analysis, data mining, causal inference, and computational linguistics to harness the power of massive data to improve human health and well-being. Most recently, I have worked on computational linguistic methods to analyze counseling and conversation strategies and data mining and social network analysis techniques to better understand exercise and health behaviors, Pokémon Go's impact on physical activity, and harnessing human computer interactions for population-scale physiological sensing of sleep and cognitive performance.
