The fundamental question about politics that I am interested in is quite simple: What keeps politicians in (and out) of power? And so, elections and anything pertaining to them are my specialty. Election campaigns are a particular favorite of mine, as is the use of rhetoric employed by political elites.
I am also very passionate about the development and application of quantitative methods. My research largely focuses on the application of text-statistical methods, natural language processing and deep learning. I am also interested in tools of analysis relying on geographical and network data.
