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 synthesis of Bayesian methods for non-linear models with machine learning. Current projects focus on interpretable methods for modelling heterogeneity in high-dimensional data and analyzing political text.
My research on these topics and others is published in Political Analysis, Comparative Political Studies, Legislative Studies Quarterly, 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.
