Thanks for reaching out to me. I am very fortunate to be receiving a lot of emails, but very unfortunate because I don’t have enough time to respond to everyone. The form below will help me get back to you.
If you are interested in inviting me to give:
- an interview, please write to Helen Chang (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- a talk, please use the contact form below.
I get these questions a lot. Is yours among them?
I would love to work with you; however, my department's policies do not allow me to host post-docs, interns, or visiting students. I strongly encourage you to reach out to the Psychology department (Alia Crum), Communications department (Gabriela Harari, Jeff Hancock), or Computer Science department (Jure Leskovec). Their policies are much more flexible.
Thank you for considering me as your prospective supervisor. I strongly encourage you to apply for a PhD at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and indicate that you would like to work with me. Good luck!
If you are interested in practicing data mining, check out one of these papers:
1. Mining Big Data to Extract Patterns and Predict Real-Life Outcomes
2. Facebook as a Social Science Research Tool: Opportunities, Challenges, Ethical Considerations and Practical Guidelines

If you are interested in my models, see: www.applymagicsauce.com
Thanks for a flattering invitation! However, I am focusing on my research at the moment and thus I am unable to engage in consulting or advising.
If you are looking for someone to help you to build predictive models (and use them in an ethical fashion to improve people's lives) please email Vesselin Popov at the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre.
I have been asked about my thoughts on these issues a lot recently. Please look for the answers in the following materials:
1. Some thoughts on privacy
2. Interview with Fareed Zakaria (CNN)
3. Interview with Radio New Zealand
4. Interview with BlindSpot
5. Article in The Register with my quotes galore
