Thomas Marlow is a post-doctoral researcher at the New York University Abu Dhabi campus Center for Interacting Urban Networks (CITIES). He received his Ph.D. in sociology from Brown University in 2020, and his work sits at the intersection of urban and environmental sociology with an emphasis on the use of computational and spatial techniques to utilize large sources of digital trace data. Thomas’s work on climate change employs computational methods to detect and characterize the role of automated social media accounts (bots) in the creation and maintenance of polarized online discourses about climate change.
