Lecturer in Digital Humanities / Postdoctoral Fellow in Political Science and International Relations, University of Canterbury

I am a political scientist working at the intersection of politics, linguistics and digital methods. I have a professional background as a software developer and use this experience to build large data-sets of text from the web and apply computer-assisted approaches to analyse these texts. I have published previously on the NZ Green party and have new book chapters forthcoming on Green parties in NZ and NZ's political parties. My other research interests are NZ's parliamentary debates, economic rhetoric and expertise, and I'm currently working on the Marsden-funded research project "Issue mapping and analysing the lethal autonomous weapons debate".
