I am an Assistant Professor at West Point’s Department of Systems Engineering and co-director of the British Election Study . You can find the BES data through the website here. You can find links to my published work and working papers through my Google Scholar profile here and my CV is here.
My research interests include electoral behavior across the world and developing better measurements in social science both for traditional surveys and big data.
I have also worked for the World Bank as a data scientist analysing online civic engagement in developed and developing country contexts, for the Organisation for Security and Co-Operation in Europe, running statistical analysis of election observer reports, and for the BBC on their election night coverage.
I completed my DPhil in Sociology at Nuffield College with a thesis titled New Methods for New Data: Developing Techniques for Analysing Alternative Social Science Data. I teach political behaviour, political sociology, R programming and social network analysis.
