Who I am
I am a computational social scientist specialized in the design and development of data science solutions in the areas of public health, clinical trials, education, justice, and policy evaluation. I currently serve as research data scientist in the Statistics and Survey Methodology Unit of Westat where I build tools and statistical models to improve data collection.
My academic research explores the fragility of political representation. I have written about the limits of political accountability when voters are faced with conflicting dimensions of representation, about how social media amplifies the offline biases of political participation, and on the perception of inequality. My research has appeared in Public Opinion Quarterly, Electoral Studies, Political Science Research and Methods, or the European Journal of Political Economy, among others. I have also authored an introduction to incomplete data analysis for social scientists.
I am a member of the editorial board of Politikon, where I blog about how technology and Internet affect politics and the way we interact with each other.
