I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Methodology at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where I have been on the faculty since 2011.   I received my PhD in Politics from Princeton University in 2010.

I have a joint project with Chris Hanretty (UEA) and Nick Vivyan (Durham) forecasting the 2015 UK General Election, which you can see at

My research is focused on the measurement of political preferences from survey, voting, network and textual data.  Applications of these methods have included citizens, legislators and judges in the US, UK and EU.
