Kathleen M. Carley is a professor in the School of Computer Science in the department - Institute for Software Research - at Carnegie Mellon University. She also has courtesy appointments at:

She has an H.D. from the University of Zurich in Business, Economics and Informatics; a Ph.D. from Harvard University in Sociology; and two S.B.'s from Massachusetts Institute of Technology - one in Political Science and on in Economics.

She is the director of the Center for Computational Analysis of Social and Organizational Systems (CASOS), a university wide interdisciplinary center that brings together network analysis, computer science, and organization science (www.casos.ece.cmu.edu). and the director of the Center for Informed Democracy and Social-cybersecurity (IDeaS).

Kathleen M. Carley's research combines cognitive science, social networks and computer science to address complex social and organizational problems. Her specific research areas are dynamic network analysis, computational social and organization theory, information and disinformation diffusion, adaptation and evolution, text mining, and the impact of telecommunication technologies and policy on communication, disease contagion and response within and among groups particularly in disaster or crisis situations. She and her lab have developed infrastructure tools for analyzing large scale dynamic networks, social media analytics tools and various agent-based simulation systems. These tools include: ORA, a graphical and statistical toolkit for analyzing and visualizing social networks, semantic networks and any high dimensional networks. AutoMap, a text-mining system for extracting semantic networks from texts and then cross-classifying them using an organizational ontology into the underlying social, knowledge, resource and task networks. BioWar a city-scale dynamic-network agent-based model for understanding the spread of disease and illness due to natural epidemics, chemical spills, and weaponized biological attacks. OrgAhead an agent-based model of organizational performance. And Construct, an agent-based model of information spread and belief formation.

CMOT Journal
She is the founding co-editor of the journal Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory which she now co-edits with Dr. Terrill Frantz. She has co-edited several books in the computational organizations and dynamic network area. She has also served on numerous panels for the National Academy of Science.
