Government and Public Policy

m a PhD student in Government and Public Policy at the University of Arizona. My research agenda includes Causal Inference, Machine Learning, and Natural Language Processing. I’m also enrolled in the Computational Social Science Graduate Certificate. I program primarily in R, but I’m skilled in Python too. Besides the fanciest number-crunching techniques, I’m enthusiastic about exploring how Data Science contributes to academic productivity and integrity. As a native Spanish speaker, I’m working on a pre-introductory R programming ebook to promote data literacy in Latin America. I firmly believe that knowledge is service! I’m more than happy to assist you in honing your skill set!
