I am a Data Scientist at Predictive Heuristics. I work with data and statistical/machine learning models to develop tools to forecast different kinds of political instability. This Washington Post article from 2017 on coup forecasting is an example of the kind of work we do. I have a Ph.D. in Political Science from Florida State University and from 2012 to 2016 I was a postdoc at Duke University.
