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:

Dr. Kathleen M. Carley (Ph.D. Harvard; HD University of Zurich) is a computational social scientist.

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 and the director of the Center for Informed DEmocracy and Social cybersecurity (IDeaS), a university wide transdisciplinary center for disinformation, hate and extremism online. Kathleen M. Carley's research combines cognitive science, network science, computer science and social science to address complex organizational, social and cultural problems. Her specific research areas include dynamic network analysis, computational social and organization theory, network adaptation and evolution, social cybersecurity, and online behavior during times of upheaval (e.g., disasters and elections). She and her students have developed infrastructure tools for analyzing large scale dynamic networks, social media and various multi-agent simulation systems. Her work led to: 1) ORA, a statistical toolkit for analyzing and visualizing multi-dimensional dynamic and spatial 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 and the commercial version known as NetMapper; 3) the Construct simulation system for exploring the impact of various social and technological interventions on the diffusion of information, beliefs, and activities at the individual or group level; and 4) BotHunter, HateHunter, and location identifier for social media data.
