Computational Social Science
I am a PhD candidate in political science at the University of California, Berkeley.
My research focuses on how access to resources influences community organizing among ethnoracial minorities in the United States using a mix of qualitative, quantitative, and computational methods. My dissertation examines how the expansion of the welfare state in the 1960s and 1970s fostered the emergence of Asian American and Latino community-based organizations in historical, comparative, and transnational perspectives. My other projects investigate identity politics in the United States and East Asia with evidence from surveys, experiments, and computational text analysis.
I've taught computational social science at the graduate level as a lead instructor. I am passionate about making computational methods training accessible.
