I am a data scientist originally trained as a quantitative political scientist. I specialize in the technical and organizational aspects of applying data science to political and social issues.
Years ago I noticed a gap in the existing data literature. On one side was data science, with roots in mathematics and computer science. On the other side were the social sciences, with hard-earned expertise modeling and predicting complex human behavior. The motivation for this site and ongoing book project is to bridge that gap: to create a practical guide to applying data science to political and social phenomena.
