About Me


I am Cody Buntain, a recently minted PhD in Computer Science from the CS department at the University of Maryland. Currently, I am funded by the IC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program (website) at UMD with a focus on community formation, real-world manifestation, and fragmentation in response to crises. Otherwise, my research areas cover social networks, event detection, and credibility in social media. 

Previous professional activities include “Director of Research” for a small software security/defense contractor firm, where we researched applications of machine learning in computer security.
