DPhil in Social Data Science

I am a PhD Candidate in Social Data Science at the Oxford Internet InstituteUniversity of Oxford, as an ESRC and Nuffield College Scholar.

My research focuses on political public opinion and polarisation, using machine learning, natural language processing, network analysis, and time-series.

Alongside my PhD, I collaborate with Oxford’s Department of Politics and International Relations, and Science Po’s Centre for European Studies and Comparative Politics.

Previously, I completed an MPhil in Politics (Oxford, 2021) and a BA in Politics and International Relations (Exeter, 2019).
