Mohini is a Ph.D. student in Social and Personality Psychology. She is also a professional portrait photographer and artist. Mohini has a background in Computer Science and Cognitive Science and likes to apply it (along with her knowledge of psychology) to her research and art to help her understand why people do the things they do.
Mohini's main interests include understanding community behaviors through the actions of individuals, specifically in the video gaming world. Her most recent projects address the following broader questions: "What are the roles people play in online communities?" and "How do different cultures form (healthy, toxic, or otherwise) in online gaming communities?" She primarily uses language analysis (NLP) techniques as well as social network modeling to answer these questions.
