I am Economics Lead at Zalando SE conducting user experience research to developing new platform steering mechanisms. I am also a visiting research fellow at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science, Harvard University developing innovative statistical software and applications for the social and physical sciences. I previously held posts at City, Univeristy of London, the Hertie School of Governance, Yonsei University, and the London School of Economics where in 2012 I completed a PhD in quantitative political science. My academic research focuses on the international political economy of public financial and monetary institutions, as well as applied social science statistics. My work has been published in peer reviewed journals including the British Journal of Political Science, Journal of Common Market Studies, Journal of Peace Research, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of European Public Policy, Review of International Political Economy, Political Science Research and Methods, and Journal of Statistical Software. I have co-authored a number of pieces on European banking union for the Bruegel Policy Contribution series. I published a book on reproducible computational research methods for Chapman and Hall.

Update 2 February 2014: A new version of simPH (Version 1.0) will soon be available for download from CRAN. It allows you to plot using points, ribbons, and (new) lines. See the updated package description paper for examples. Note that the ribbons argument will no longer work as in the examples below. Please use type = 'ribbons' (or 'points' or 'lines'). Effectively showing estimates and uncertainty from Cox Proportional Hazard (PH) models, especially for interactive and non-linear effects, can be challenging with currently available software. So, researchers often just simply display a results table. These are pretty useless for Cox PH models. It is difficult to decipher a simple linear variable’s estimated effect and basically impossible to understand time interactions, interactions between variables, and nonlinear effects without the reader further calculating quantities of interest for a variety of fitted values.So, I’ve been putting together the simPH R p…
