About me

I am an Associate Research Scholar in the Empirical Studies of Conflict project at Princeton University. Previously I served as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Computer Science Department at Dartmouth College. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh.

I use data science techniques such as machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) to study the role of information and information communication technologies (ICT) in international and domestic politics. Ongoing projects investigate the spread of misinformation, how political actors use digital media to promote their agendas, the impact of technological changes on the human rights discourse, and the broader societal impacts of technology.

My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation and published in the American Political Science Review, Political Analysis, the Journal of Politics, and the Journal of Conflict Resolution, among others. I have also published in popular media outlets such as Vox and Political Violence at a Glance and had an article selected as one of “The Five Best Ideas Today” by Time Magazine/Aspen Institute.
