Spotlight on Sponsored Research: Bill Rand Awarded Funding from NC State Lab for Analytic Sciences
Bill Rand was awarded a $103,004 grant from Lab for Analytic Science (LAS) to continue working on methods to detect, characterize, and assess state-sponsored influence campaigns using publicly available social media data. With this grant, Dr. Rand will collaborate with PhD Statistics student, Anthony Weishampel, to apply functional data analyses to model the volume and lifespans of marketing and state-sponsored influence campaigns on social media.
