I'm a computational social scientist, data scientist, analytical sociologist, occasional philosopher, and full-time nerd.
Most recently, I've been developing two R packages (quanteda
) for quantitative text analysis, and speaking about them
I've also been teaching statistical programming to biologists in Switzerland
and students at Columbia
, and writing about survey methodology
Right now I'm finishing my dissertation, and working on a statistical methodology project about data-dependent analysis.
