I am a computational social researcher and data scientist specialized in the quantitative analysis of political behavior and the development of methods and tools for the collection of high quality data.
My academic research focuses on the link between public opinion and political representation but I have also written extensively about survey methods and digital data collection. I have published in peer-reviewed journals like Political Science Research and Methods, Public Opinion Quarterly, European Journal of Political Economy, or Social Science Computer Review among others. I am the author of an introduction to the analysis of incomplete datasets 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.
I currently serve as Data Science Manager in the Statistics and Survey Methodology Unit of Westat where I provide expertise in the design, implementation, and evaluation of tools to support faster and more efficient collection of social data, and advice projects areas and clients on research design and analysis with organic and enriched data. Before that, I worked as statistician at the Scientific Research Group of YouGov in the San Francisco area.
