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 interested in developing new machine learning and causal inference methods to understand complex, dynamic phenomena in social science. Substantively, I'm interested in political communication, digital media, and local politics. Additionally, I'm the current maintainer of the large-scale international tariffs database, the MIT TradeLab.

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