Justin Savoie is completing a PhD in Political Science at the University of Toronto. His current work uses models of natural language to examine how politicians and citizens talk about political matters, with a particular focus on the Canadian context. He has published peer-reviewed work on public opinion, political behaviour, and citizen forecasting; more broadly his areas of interests include computational social science and Canadian politics.
In addition to his academic work, Justin has worked as Data Science Lead with Vox Pop Labs (2018-2021), a social enterprise that builds survey-based applications organizing political and social data in meaningful ways. At Vox Pop Labs, he was leading all data science activities for projects such as Vote Compass, Australia Talks and the COVID-19 Monitor.
