Picture of me!I’m a graduate student in the Government Department at Harvard University and an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science. I study the politics of the internet and political methodology. My current projects include a study of international trade in illicit goods in the darknet, an analysis of the effects of massive data breaches, and the development of models and tools to analyze audio and video as data.

My research has been published in Political Analysis, Comparative Political Studies, twice in the American Journal of Political Science, and received an award from the Society of Political Methodology. I’ve also published four open-source software packages. Ongoing projects are generously supported by J-PAL, the Weiss Family Program Fund, and various internal funding sources at Harvard.

I am a co-founder of the Harvard Experiments Working Group, a forum providing graduate students with funding for and feedback on experimental research. I also co-organized the inaugural Harvard Experimental Political Science Graduate Student Conference.
