A quantitative political scientist, I research the behaviour of political actors (voters, elites, parties); teach public opinion, political strategy and data science; and occasionally provide polling and statistical consulting.
I am a lecturer in political science at the United States Studies Centre at the University of Sydney, where my research focuses on using novel data sources to study the issue preferences and behaviour of political actors, including voters, interest groups and elites. I also teach public opinion, political strategy and quantitative research methods in the US Studies Centre, the Department of Government, and the Faculty of Engineering and IT.
I have a PhD in political science from Monash University. I have previously taught at the University of Melbourne and Monash University, and held government and media relations rolls, and provided statistical and political consulting services for industry associations, trade unions and political campaigns.
I am also public officer and executive committee member of the Australian Society for Quantitative Political Science. I also teach statistics through the Australian Consortium for Social & Political Research Inc (information on the course can be found here).
