Talks

I regularly give talks (both in industry and academia) on technical topics in data science, surveys, text-as-data, and experiments, and substantive topics in media, elections, public opinion, and political behavior. Below is a selection of some of these talks.

If you’re interested in having me speak for your organization/event or guest lecture for your class, let's get in touch (soubhik barari [at] gmail [dot] com).
