Winson Peng was recently awarded a pilot research grant by Trifecta which is an interdisciplinary research initiative at Michigan State University (MSU, http://trifecta.msu.edu/). In collaboration with colleagues from the College of Engineering at MSU, Winson will employ voluminous user-generated data on Twitter and integrate sentiment mining, network analysis, and time series modeling to examine how individual sentiment toward emerging diseases would evolve and diffuse.

After three-year work at Nanyang Technological University of Singapore, Winson has started his new job as Associate Professor (with tenure) at the Department of Communication of MSU on August, 2016.
