My paper my project on the polarization of political parties is in preparation for publication. Hopefully, they will appear here soon.
My work on modeling large scale human behavior:

Prior to joining Northwestern as a PhD student, I built mathematical models applied to heat transfer and microwave chemistry. The following are some of this work published in peer-reviewed journals.

As an undergraduate student, I also conducted research in social psychology. I conducted human-subject experiments to study the effect of foreign accents on hiring decisions. My result shows a double standard on how men and women are perceived for having a foreign accent.
