Using data driven methods from statistics and machine learning, my work lies at the intersection between social science and computer science.
I am Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University. Prior to that, I was at Oxford University and worked as a Data Scientist in industry. I graduated with a PhD in Political Science from the Graduate School of the University of Mannheim.
You can read my Political Science papers in the Journal of Politics or International Interactions, among others. I presented findings relevant to Computer Science at the International Conference on Machine Learning and the Theory and Practice of Differential Privacy Workshop Series.
I regularly collaborate with private and public institutions as a consultant.
