Talks & workshop materials
I frequently engage with specialists and general audiences on areas of social science, methodology, and technology related to my work and research. In addition to presentations and keynotes in professional conferences, I am also regularly quoted as expert in domestic and international media outlets.
Over the years, I have also taught short courses and seminars on methods and infrastructure in massive data analysis and on different areas of survey statistics for social scientists.
