Welcome! For the 2017-2018 academic year I am visiting Princeton University as the Microsoft Visiting Professor at the Center for Information Technology Policy. I am Assistant Professor in the departments of Public Administration and Policy and Political Science at the University of Georgia. I am also a faculty affiliate at the Institute for Artificial Intelligence

I study political methodology with a focus on text and image as data, the intersection of machine learning and causal inference, high dimensional experimental design,  Bayesian inference and network analysis.

My substantive research interests include American political institutions and bureaucracy, public administration, policy and political communication. I also have interests in the epistemological foundations of social science research and artificial intelligence.
