I am an assistant professor at the Waseda Institute for Advanced Study at Waseda University. Before coming back to Tokyo, I was a research officer at the Department of Methodology and the Department of International Relations of the London School of Economics and Political Science. I am also an affiliated researcher at Waseda University, a member of a project on popular mobilization in Russia at the LSE’s International Relations Department, and a main contributor to a quantitative text analysis package in R.
I have a PhD in Social Research Methodology (LSE) and an MA in Political Science (Central European University). I also spent 3 month in 2012 at the University of Auckland and the 6 month in 2012-2013 at the University of Leeds for my PhD study before coming to the LSE.
Chapters of my PhD thesis, titled Measuring Bias in International News: A Large-scale Analysis of News Agency Coverage of the Ukraine Crisis, which I have submitted and defended in August 2017 had been published in the European Journal of Communication, Digital Journalism, and the Journal of International Communication. A paper based on my MA thesis was also published in International Communication Gazette.
