Research

My research interests are in computationally scalable approaches to social science applications, where I focus on recovering high-dimensional objects from degraded data and determining how to recover the underlying structure. Methods used for this are entity resolution, small area estimation, locality sensitive hashing, and privacy-preserving record linkage as applied to medical studies, fmri studies, human rights violations, and estimation of poverty rates in hard-to-reach domains.
