I am a data scientist and social researcher specialized in the design, implementation, and evaluation of tools that facilitate an efficient collection of high quality social data. I use machine learning and statistical models to build rapid feedback applications and quality control systems and to enrich traditional survey data with new digital sources.
I currently serve as Associate Director of Research (Data Labs) at Pew Research Center. Previously, I managed the data science team of the Statistics and Evaluation Sciences Unit at Westat and worked as statistician at the Scientific Research Group of YouGov.
My academic research deals with the link between public opinion and political representation, particularly in the context of digital politics. My book, Retooling Politics: How Digital Media Are Shaping Democracy, coauthored with Andreas Jungherr and Daniel Gayo-Avello, was published by Cambridge University Press.
