I am a Hallsworth Fellow at the University of Manchester. My research interests include cross-national participation; developing tools for working with big data in social science; internet activism and participation; and social network analysis.
I work on the British Election Study with Professors Geoffrey Evans, Jane Green, Ed Fieldhouse, Hermann Schmitt and Cees Van Der Eijk. You can find the BES data through the website here. I teach political sociology, R programming and social network analysis.
I also work 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. My advisor was Steve Fisher.
