First Friday Lunch - October 4, 2019

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and their guests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons

Joel Finkelstein *18, Director of the Network Contagion Research Institute (NCRI) in Princeton, NJ, joins the James Madison Program as a 2019-2020 Visiting Research Scholar.  NCRI deploys machine learning tools to track, expose, and combat the growing tide of hate and extremism on social media. His work on hate in social media has appeared on the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, CNN and other media outlets. 

Formerly a research fellow at the Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism and a graduate fellow at the National Science Foundation, Joel received his Ph.D. from Princeton University where his doctoral work focused on the Psychology and Neuroscience of addiction behavior. He received his B.A. in Neuroscience and Behavior from University of California, Santa Cruz. During his time with the James Madison Program, he will research using quantitative methods to capture psychological, political, and linguistic markers of incitement in both modern and historical episodes of group-motivated hate and violence.

Please join us!  As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion.
