I am an Assistant Professor in Information and Statistical Sciences (joint).

My academic research answers questions in social sciences, such as: are our politicians actually representing us, do elections matter, and how can we make political polling better. To do this I build, clean, maintain, and share datasets in a reproducible way, and then use quantitative methods, such astext analysis, machine learning, and Bayesian hierarchical models, to analyse them.
