international relations analyst with a growing data science element to my work. My subject matter expertise is religious politics, international conflict, specifically in the Middle East and South Asia. My methodological expertise is in cross-national data analysis, index construction and analysis of international politics and conflict data. I am also proficient in managing data-collection efforts, which is where the data science comes in--I'm increasingly turning to programming tools to automate data collection and management, to improve efficiency and reliability. I work primarily in R and Stata, although I am starting to branch out into Python.
