Welcome to Valentina Shipovskaya
Dataviz for healthy aging!
As an independent sociologist and data-driven researcher, the main goal of my study is to understand how social relations are responsible for producing health capacity and functional stability during the second half of the life course. I use a combination of theoretical approaches and visualizing of some statistical methods specially developed as Stata and R-code for my research question.

Multidisciplinary Social Scientist and Intergenerational Media Researcher
I’ve had a passion for science, research and innovations since I was a child, and my intensive studying and working experience paid off in 2013 when I graduated as Master of Arts in Social Sciences (Sociology and Gender Studies). I enjoy following the results of my research into Computer Social Science and implementig new methods of data visualization. Learn more about my work.
Unlocking Life’s Mysteries
The Visibility Tool
3D descriptions and predictions
Building upon work done by my colleagues, I have developed a powerful tool for use in the identification and characterization of the aging processes in my statistical model. A major advantage of this visibility tool is its improved gender sensitivity by data analysis, which allows it to detect dynamic changes in response to sociological questions.
Data Mining & Machine Learning
Why digital sociology?
We still have only a very limited understanding of Data Mining & Machine Learning. Answering questions about this is essential for understanding the mechanistic role it plays on other scientific processes, and for developing tools to further explore this research avenue with more sensitive measurements and improved data collection.

Social structures and transformative power of innovations
In an effort to gain a better understanding of institutional family demography, I have recently begun to use animation to investigate the organization and functionality of the diverse parts of my model. I am currently looking to expand this work by collaborating with new public health institutions that have the facilities and prior experience to investigate the future of intergenerational health.
