The substantive focus of my work centers on the study of Congress, state and local bureaucracy, and organizational dynamics, through the use of computational social science methods. In service of this research agenda, I focus on developing and implementing machine learning algorithms for analyzing social processes. I have a particular interest in developing new statistical models for text, networks, and text-valued networks. From 2013--2015, I was a statistical methods consultant for the Institute for Social Science Research at UMass Amherst, while completing Master's degrees in Applied Econometrics and Political Science.
