Hi. I am a lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Government at University of Essex, UK, specializing in American Politics and Data Science.
I hold a Ph.D. degree in Politics from NYU. Previously I was a postdoctoral research fellow at Washington University in St. Louis and University of Pittsburgh.
My research focuses on politicians’ legislative and communication styles they choose to perform under various institutional constraints in American politics context, and I further explore electoral consequences and policy implications resulting from their stylistic choices. For the research, I use text analysis, machine learning, causal inference models, multi-level modeling, formal modeling and experimental methods. My works were published at American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, Legislative Studies Quarterly, Electoral Studies and Journal of Legislative Studies.
I have taught courses in American politics and Congress and a broad range of quantitative methods at both graduate and undergraduate levels including causal inference, Maximum Likelihood Estimation, and regression analysis.
