I am a postdoctoral fellow at New York University’s
Center for Social Media and Politics. I develop text-as-data/NLP and machine learning methods for computational social science questions. My current research focuses on measurement using text and social media.
I received my PhD in Political Science and Scientific Computing and MA in Statistics at the University of Michigan.
