About me

I apply machine learning to problems in political conflict and violence. I am particularly interested in measurement and data collection, forecasting, neural networks, anomaly detection, natural language processing, and cybersecurity. I graduated from Duke University with my Ph.D. in Political Science in 2016. I received my B.A. in Mathematics and International Studies from UNC Asheville in 2010.
