About me

I am a Program Manager for Big Data and Data Science with the Center for Political Studies in the Institute for Social Research (ISR) and with Advanced Research Computing Technology Services at the University of Michigan. In this role, I facilitate and support social science data science research involving ISR faculty. 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. Increasingly, I am interested in technological solutions in support of sustainable human behaviors that combat climate change.
