I am a senior data scientist at Attest. I am also a member of the Quanteda Initiative and a lecturer for the LSE summer school course Introduction to Data Science and Machine Learning.
My core expertise lies in
Previously, I was a postdoctoral researcher in analytic software development at the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics. In addition, I was a research scientist at Uppsala University working on (in conjunction with the Research Institutes of Sweden–RISE) the automation of the Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) using natural language processing (NLP) and active learning.
Most of my side projects are on GitHub. I contribute my blog to R-Bloggers, a hub for all things R that I have learned a lot from, and RWeekly. I am starting a Python data science blog in 2020—stay tuned!
