About Me

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

I use data science to answer questions around media, public opinion, elections, and human behavior 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 cues from corporations.

Currently, I am a Quantitative Social Scientist at NORC at the University of Chicago. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science and an A.M. in Statistics from Harvard and a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics from Tufts. Previously, I've worked in research and data science roles at SurveyMonkey and Microsoft Research. I am also currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor in Political Science at Columbia University.

I write about politics, data, and social science for a Substack newsletter called Somewhat Unlikely.

I'm currently based in NYC. If you're in the area, let's grab coffee some time.
