Yuanyuan (April) Song is a 4th-year PhD candidate in Management Information Systems at the University of Georgia. She is working on the Theory Research Exchange (T-Rex) project, which proposes to digitize the core knowledge in publications and develop methods to analyze what is coded. Her research uses a variety of methods including graph theory, network science, and natural language processing. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, swimming, and Legos.
