I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and a faculty affiliate with the Division of Computational & Data Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis. I study political methodology and the political economy of information and media. My current projects include the development of models and tools to analyze text, audio, image, and video data. My research is published or forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, Political Analysis, Science, and elsewhere. My research received the Gosnell Prize for Excellence in Political Methodology from the Society of Political Methodology twice; is reported on in National Geographic, Newsweek, Le Monde, Forbes, and other popular press outlets; and is supported by funding from the National Science Foundation and other grants.
