Hi, I’m Naiyan. Or as most people call me, Nay.
I am an independent researcher and a data analyst at the Office for National Statistics (ONS), UK. This blog covers my academic research to date. My research interests include social media platform and online communities. I have a specific interest in the social media platform Reddit.
I have worked with charities, community groups, co-operatives and briefly in politics. I have a postgraduate diploma in social research from the University of Birmingham, UK.
Currently I am collaborating internationally with several American academics on papers involving the social media platform Reddit. These cover health topics, literature reviews, and digital research ethics. I also have a keen interest in building my skills on machine learning, particularly with natural language processing.
