Matt is interested in scalable methodologies that link large disparate data sets to inform decision making. Recent topics of interest include: Community detection in annotated online social networks (with application to counter-terrorism), Socialbot Detection and Analysis, open-source exploitation, social network analysis, machine learning, and spatio-temporal pattern analysis.
