About me

I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Politics, Languages and International Studies at the University of Bath and a faculty member of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI (ART-AI). I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from New York University and an M.A. in Political Science from Central European University. I joined the University of Bath as a Prize Fellow in the Institute for Policy Research in 2018. Before that, 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 who studies online communication and information exposure using a range of methods such as natural language processing and quantitative text analysis, agent-based modelling, machine learning and experiments. My work was published in Electoral Studies, Social Networks, Economics Letters, Journal of Corporate Finance and AAAI conference proceedings, and was features in NCRM podcasts and research methods videos.

I have broad experience designing and delivering courses, lab sessions and workshops in research design, programming, statistics, computational text analysis, experimental design and social media data analysis in R, Python and Stata.
