I am a graduate student in the Department of Government at Harvard University and an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science and the Minda de Gunzberg Center for European Studies.
My interests mostly focus on political methodology and legislative politics. I am especially interested in the application of Bayesian methods for non-linear models to understand high-dimensional political data such as roll call votes and political text.
My research on these topics and others is published or forthcoming in Political Analysis, Comparative Political Studies, the Annual Review of Political Science, and Parliamentary Affairs.
I can be contacted at goplerud[at]g.harvard.edu and a CV can be found here.
