PhD student Wasim Ahmed delivers social media talk at NSMNSS event

Wasim Ahmed delivered a talk on Social Network Analysis with NodeXL at an event organised by the New Social Media New Social Science (NSMNSS) network alongside the Social Research Association (SRA). The event was attended across sections with delegates from industry, academia, and government.
Wasim’s talk also touched on how researchers could analyse social media data aggregately using NodeXL, in an offline setting, in order to upload the anonymity of social media users. Wasim has provided guidance to University research ethics committees across the UK, and Europe. 

Organisations in attendance ranged from Pulsar, Which?, London Sport, Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), the Home Office, and Surrey Police among others. The event was also attended by academics from over 10 institutions across the United Kingdom.
