I am an assistant professor at Political Science Department and Digital Science Center (DiSC) of the University of Innsbruck. Before coming to Austria, I worked at Waseda Institute for Advanced Study of Waseda University and the Department of Methodology and the Department of International Relations of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). 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.
