Soubhik Barari


Welcome! I am a Ph.D. student in Political Science and an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University.

I am a computational social scientist in training. Specifically, I'm interested in developing new machine learning and causal inference methods to understand complex, dynamic datasets in social science. Substantively, I'm interested in political economy, online political behavior, and algorithmic bias in public policy. I am additionally interested in developing interactive visual analytics tools for social science.

Prior to Harvard, I worked as a data science research specialist at the MIT Political Methodology Lab. I graduated from Tufts University in 2016 with a B.S. in Computer Science and Mathematics.
