Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor European Politics & Society at University of Groningen.
Prior to this, I worked as an Assistant Professor in Political Science at University College Dublin. I also worked a postdoctoral fellow in Political Science at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam; as a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence; and as a research fellow at the University of Exeter. I received my PhD from Stony Brook University.
In my work, I use computational text analysis methods to study the rhetoric of political executives in response to crisis. My methodological interests concern issues related to multilingual text analysis and images as a means of political communication.
I am co-founder of the Connected_Politics Lab at UCD. I am also a member of the European research infrastructure project OPTED “Observatory for Political Texts in European Democracies”, based at University College Dublin where I remain an affiliation as a Visiting Assistant Professor.
I tweet under hjms.
