I am a quantitative social scientist, scientific humanist and patriotic cosmopolitan. I was born in Mongolia, grew up in America (U.S. citizen) and studied in England.
I am strongly interested in drawing insights from data to inform policy and strategy. Currently, I am working as a research analyst at Temple University where I apply statistical methods and data analysis to improve student placement outcomes and conduct institutional research.
Prior to that, I worked at the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute where I developed predictive models to inform enrollment planning and optimize financial aid allocation. During my PhD research I produced three quantitative papers on the effects of ethnic divisions on democracy and poverty using applied statistics and econometrics.
I received my PhD in Government (Political Science) from University of Essex, United Kingdom, a MSc in International Public Policy from University College London and a BA in Philosophy and History from University of Southampton, United Kingdom.
This blog is an expression of my thoughts on political economy, statistical modeling, data analysis and philosophy.
In my spare time, I play guitar, read, watch anime, meditate, listen to BTS and travel.
