Research

Working papers:

  • Children of Democracy? How socialization affects individual support for democracy [revise & resubmit at CPS]
  • Does reducing entitativity mitigate partisan polarization?
  • How young is too young to vote? Electoral habit formation among 16-year-olds (with Laura Bronner)

Data Science

As a quantitatively inclined social scientist, I am excited about the growing systematic use of data by governments, non-profits and companies.

I am currently most excited about

  • normalization methods to reduce biases
  • non-probability survey sampling
  • big data tools such as Spark
  • experimental testing and UX design

Innovations in these methods occur fast, so to stay up to date I am pursuing a masters degree at Harvard’s Department of Statistics.

Teaching

I have served as a teaching fellow or course assistant for the following courses at Harvard:

  • GOV 20: Foundations of Comparative Government (Fall 2016, Fall 2017)
  • GOV 97: Sophomore Tutorial “Democracy” (Spring 2017, Spring 2018)
  • DPI-401: Institutions and Development (Spring 2016)

I am also happy to advise undergraduate theses on a wide range of topics. Simply send me an e-mail and tell me a bit about your research interests.
