I am currently Research Director at NatCen Social Research.
I received my Ph.D. (2009) from the University of Essex, Department of Government. After being awarded an ESRC Postdoctoral fellowship to develop my research on Text Analysis, I joined the Department of Methodology at the LSE (2010).
My work revolves around the use and application of Text-Mining techniques to analyse large corpora – i.e. public consultations; open-ended responses; parliamentary debates. My main research interests include computer-assisted textual analysis, research methods, public policy (Health) and the analysis of political and social attitudes.
