Welcome! I’m a research scientist using skills I developed over eight years in academia to help companies create, systematize, and understand data.

If you are interested in discussing a consulting relationship, please see the “consulting” tab above; or, if you are interested in my archived academic work, please see the “research” tab.

I received my PhD from the University of Texas in 2015, where I was awarded the Outstanding Dissertation Award for the best dissertation filed in the schools of Social Science, Business, and Education. In the past I have been a post-doctoral fellow at the Christopher H. Browne Center for International Politics at the University of Pennsylvania and a Graduate Fellow at the Clements Center for History, Strategy, and Statecraft. I also held a research position at the Innovations for Peace and Development lab at UT, where I was the co-lead of the analytics team.
