My research interest lie in the intersection of applied microeconomics and big data. I am particularly interested in exploring ways in which we can study economic behavior and measuring economic outcomes through data collected from social media.
Work in progress:
- From Lights to Text: Estimating GDP Through Twitter
- Flood Insurance Reform and Housing Values (with Francesc Ortega and Süleyman Taspinar)
- The Global Twitter Project: Analyzing Global Trends in Image Sharing (with Lev Manovich)
