I’m a DC-based data analyst for a statistical consulting firm. My background is in political science, with specializations in applied statistics and international conflict. I finished my PhD in June of 2013, and thus now have time to do things like write blogs, read novels, and visit friends.
Recent and Upcoming
On 1/31, I am giving an invited talk on geospatial outlier detection at George Mason University’s Department of Computational Social Science. The talk will parallel the one I gave in November at the Data Science DC Meetup, but be more technically focused.
Rich Heimann and I are writing a book on social media mining using R. No sneak peeks as of yet, but we promise big things.
Kyle Beardsley and I are co-authoring a piece that examines, formally and empirically, the incentives for disputants to bargain in bad faith, and the degree to which mediators can prevent that from happening.
