Assistant Professor

Department of Political Science
Columbia University






I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Columbia University. I specialize in political methodology and develop statistical methods for questions in political science and the social sciences.

My research has focused on causal inference from experimental and observational data, spatial and network analysis, and the development of machine learning methods for the social sciences. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in American Journal of Political Science, Political Analysis, and Journal of the American Statistical Association.

In 2019, my work on causal diffusion analysis won the Gosnell Prize from the Society for Political Methodology (for the best work in political methodology presented at any political science conference during the preceding year). In 2017, I also received the John T. Williams Dissertation Prize (for the best dissertation proposal in the area of political methodology).

I received a Ph.D. from Princeton University (2020) and a B.A. from the University of Tokyo (2015). I was a pre-doctoral fellow in the Department of Government at Harvard University from 2018 to 2020. I also studied at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, as a visiting student in 2013.
