POPNet, an initiative of Universiteit Leiden (Netherlands), connects with CSH team leader Fariba Karimi.


Fariba will give a seminar talk on Feb 21, 2022.

Registration is possible via POPNet.




In this talk, I show how fundamental properties of social interactions such as homophily can result in the emergence of inequalities and biases in society and algorithms and what societal consequences it has on the visibility of minorities.





POPNET is a novel digital infrastructure and research community with the aim of unlocking longitudinal social network data on the entire population of the Netherlands for academic research purposes. It enables new exciting research in an anonymized as well as ethically and legally responsible manner. This research may lead to actionable insights into key issues including segregation, substantive social change, and UN sustainable development goals such as reducing inequality.
