Sarah K. Dreier Department of Political Science University of Washington
ABOUT I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow (Political Science and Computer Science and Engineering) and a Data Science Postdoctoral Fellow (eScience Institute) at the University of Washington.My research examines the intersection between religion, state power, and human rights. Trained as a comparative and socio-legal political scientist, I collaborate with computer scientists to integrate qualitative and computational text analysis. This work seeks to triangulate evidence from qualitative, statistical, and natural language processing (NLP) analyses; to leverage text-as-data and other data science tools on messy, real-world, qualitatively coded data; and to amplify qualitative observations, analyses, and sensibilities to the scale of big data. I have conducted research in the United States, East Africa, and western Europe. See my curriculum vitae for more information.
