I am Lecturer at Cardiff University.

My research helps societies take better decisions. More specifically, I focus on the creation, change and impact of institutions in governance. Since language is the central transmission belt for social interaction, I often use natural language processing (NLP) to answer my research questions. In recent years, I have been implementing several projects with a focus on Latin America. 

You can read about my findings for example in the Journal of Politics, International Interactions or the Journal of Politics in Latin America.
