I am a data scientist at Pivotal in New York, New York.  Before life at Pivotal, I received a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Rochester where I conducted research on American political institutions.  My dissertation focuses on member participation in the U.S. House of Representatives in the form of floor speeches.  I map the patterns of member participation via floor speech as well as influences on members’ propensity to participate.
