I am a postdoctoral fellow at New York University’s Center for Social Media and Politics. I received my PhD in Political Science and Scientific Computing and MA in Statistics at the University of Michigan. I develop applied AI and computational social science methods that extract social and political insights from unstructured data such as social media content and newspaper articles. These methods address research questions about political elite and non-elite ideology, affective polarization, and hateful and abusive speech and memes. My current research develops novel measurement methods using generative large language models. I also leverage social and political science principles to develop novel approaches to evaluating the capabilities of generative LLMs.
