I’m a Database Journalist at FiveThirtyEight. I collect, analyze, and write about data mostly pertaining to US politics.

I am also an Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy and a Democracy and Technology Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School where I recently developed and taught Programming and Data for Policymakers, a course designed to equip policy students with the skills needed to navigate nuanced issues at the interscection of technology and governance through a combination of hands-on programming workshops and policy discussions. I have a research interest in artificial intelligence, particularly using computational analysis of language to better understand political environments.
