About Jason

Welcome! I study political institutions, causal inference, text analysis and machine learning.

My research focuses on understanding how technology shapes democractic political institutions and administrative decision making with a focus on American and European political institutions. I also do research on the political economy of immigration in the United States and religion and politics.

My work in political methodology and statistics lies at the intersection of machine learning and causal inference. Research in this area includes using machine learning algorithms to improve upon classical causal inference techniques, text-as-data, image analysis, scalable missing data imputation and Bayesian causal inference. I teach courses on text analysis, applied machine learning, causal inference, statistics, programming and public policy.

My research has been published or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, Political Analysis, the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory, Electoral Studies and American Politics Research.
