Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Iulia Cioroianu has recently joined the University of Bath as a Prize Fellow in the Institute for Policy Research. She holds a Ph.D. in political science from New York University and an M.A. in political science from Central European University. Before joining the IPR, she was a research fellow in the Q-Step Centre for quantitative social sciences at the University of Exeter, and a pre-doctoral fellow in the LSE Department of Methodology.


Iulia is a social data scientist who studies the effects of social media and online information exposure on political competition and polarization using natural language processing and quantitative text analysis, machine learning and survey experiments. Her work was published in Electoral Studies, Social Networks and AAAI conference proceedings, and was features in NCRM podcasts and research methods videos. She received an IBM Faculty Award as well as an ESRC IAA Innovation Fellowships, and is currently working with the IBM Centre for Advanced Studies in Amsterdam on the project Understanding News Bias (UNBias). The project develops algorithms for measuring topic-specific ideological positions in news articles, and a web browser extension which reveals these positions to users, while offering them the opportunity to read other articles on the same topic but which may present a different ideological perspective.
