About Me

Hello! I'm a computational social scientist and data scientist.

I use data science to answer questions around media, political communication, public opinion, and behavioral science more broadly.

My academic research explores the dynamics and effects of online misinformation, public deliberation in local politics, media coverage in U.S. elections, and political communication from corporations.

Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Harvard University and a part-time research scientist at SurveyMonkey. Previously, I was a research intern at Microsoft Research and a staff data scientist at the MIT Political Methodology Lab. At Harvard, I am an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS). I hold an A.M. in Statistics from Harvard and a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from Tufts.
