About me

Hello! I am a Research Advisor for Quantitative Evidence and Analysis at Amnesty International. In this role, I guide, oversee and contribute to data-informed research and advocacy in the fight for human rights. Previously, I was a Program Manager for Big Data and Data Science with the Center for Political Studies in the Institute for Social Research and with Advanced Research Computing at the University of Michigan. I received my PhD from the Department of Government at the University of Essex in 2014. My research is on political violence, human rights, data generating processes, and model-based approaches to measurement. My professional experience is in the area of human rights, science, and technology. I am also interested in technological solutions that facilitate sustainable human behaviors to combat climate change.
