Daniel Karell’s research interests lie at the intersection of culture, communication, and contentious politics. Much of his work draws on digital media data and computational methodologies. Some of Daniel’s current projects examine: how social media shape instances of political unrest and violence; the role of discourse and networks in the growth of extremist online communities; and how people justify and tolerate violence against members of other groups. His research has appeared in various academic journals, including American Sociological Review, Sociological Methodology, and Poetics. He is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology at Yale University.
