Tim Graham is Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian National University, Australia, with a joint appointment in sociology and computer science. His research combines social theory and computationally-intensive approaches to analysing, understanding, and predicting social phenomena.

He has recently studied the shape and nature of government on the web through analysis of large-scale hyperlink networks. His recent research examines: how socialbots influence public discourse on Twitter; the structure and dynamics of the anti-vaccination movement online; machine learning for predicting violent crime; and developing new theoretically-attuned methods for social network analysis.
