Background

​​​I am interested in how we can learn from quantitative data in social sciences, especially data with a strong spatio-temporal component. Recurrent themes are modeling social phenomena, prediction of outcomes and data quality.

In my PhD project, I will investigate how climate change, through long term mechanisms working on intermediate variables connected with the economic system, might affect the propensity for violent conflict.
