I am a Prize Fellow in the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Bath. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from New York University and an M.A. in Political Science from Central European University. Before joining the IPR, I was a research fellow in the Q-Step Centre for quantitative social sciences at the University of Exeter, and a pre-doctoral fellow in the LSE Department of Methodology.
I am a computational social scientist. I study the effects of social media and online information exposure on political competition and polarization using natural language processing, quantitative text analysis, machine learning and survey experiments. My work has been published in Electoral Studies, Social Networks, Journal of Computational Social Science and the AAAI Conference Proceedings, and was featured in NCRM and SAGE Methods podcasts and research methods videos.
