Hi, I’m LaRoyce J. Covington, Jr.

I am a PhD student in the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University. In December 2020, I graduated from the University of South Florida with a BS in Information Studies and a BA in Political Science.

At USF, I participated in research as an undergraduate assistant in Dr. Loni Hagen’s Big Data Analytics Lab, investigating online communication networks during times of crisis.

My interests are in computational argumentation, knowledge representation and reasoning, the Semantic Web, and cognitive science. I am working on a few projects to hopefully facilitate my and others’ interest in these areas. More can be found on my CV.
