I completed my PhD in the Wilf Family Department of Politics at New York University in May 2016. I primarily study methodology, focusing on improving the way that we draw causal inferences, especially by the judicious use of time in the design phase.

In particular, I am working on adaptive experimental design, machine learning, and the application of these tools to social media and political participation. I was a member of the SMaPP lab at NYU.

In collaborative efforts, I am doing work on special interest group politics, text analysis as well as conflict.

I am starting a job with Facebook’s Experiments and Causal Inference group in Core Data Science in the Fall.
