PhD Candidate in Political Science & Scientific Computing

I am a PhD candidate in political science and scientific computing and an MA student in statistics at the University of Michigan. My research focuses on political methodology. At the moment, I am interested in using deep learning approaches found in natural language processing and computer vision to solve problems in political science. I am in the process of writing a dissertation titled “Essays on Representation Learning for Political Science Research.” I am advised by Walter Mebane.
