Hi! I'm Samuel.

I'm a computational social scientist. I use big data, applied math, and scientific computing to research how elections work, and how to make them function better. I work at MIT, where I'm the Research Director of the MIT Election Data and Science Lab.

I study election rules and how they shape voter behaviour. I specialize in big data in elections, and the interactions between electoral systems, election administration, and vote choice. As a methodologist, I develop computational methods for political science research.

I'm also a computational activist and data-for-goodnik. My code and data have been used to build political infrastructure, and to improve election administration.
