Mia Jovanova

PhD Candidate

University of Pennsylvania




I am a PhD candidate at the Annenberg School for Communication and the Communication Neuroscience Lab at the University of Pennsylvania.

Broadly, I use tools from computational social science, network science and machine learning to study how people process information and change their behavior.

At present, my work focuses on developing predictive person-specific (sometimes called idiosyncratic) models of health behavior using intensive mobile sampling. My work aims to bridge insights from person-level cognition and social processes in groups to improve individual and collective well-being.
