My methodological research interests include text analysis, machine learning, record linkage and data visualisation. Substantively, I’m interested in comparative and British politics, political communication, lobbying and social media. In my current research I analyse how organisations get access to government and what other strategies they employ to affect policy.
I am teaching a range of quantitative methods courses and espouse experiential learning pedagogy for training in empirical political science research and data analysis.
Prior to starting my PhD I have spent some time in data science industry. I received my BA in Political Psychology from the St Petersburg State University, Department of Psychology and my MSc in Social Research Methods from LSE. Apart from social science training, I also have a diploma in Software Engineering from the SPbU, Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics.
