I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science (Data Science) at Purdue University. I am core faculty in the Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts program and affiliated faculty in the Advanced Methods at Purdue (AMAP) cluster.

My research uses computational social science methods to study democracy. I develop and apply tools in machine learning, computer vision, anomaly detection, survey methods, and measurement theory to answer questions such as how to improve the quality of election administration in developing countries, and how modern democracies favor the interests of the rich over those of the poor.

Before coming to Purdue, I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Law and Politics at Cardiff University. I have also been a consulting researcher for the Latin American Public Opinion Project at Vanderbilt University, HM Prison and Probation Service Wales, HM Department for International Development, and The New Media Firm. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018.
