As you might guess from the title of this page, my name is Alexander. I am currently employed at GESIS – The Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences as a Research Associate/Doctoral Candidate. Previously, I was a Masters student at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, majoring in Logic, Computation, and Methodology. As an undergraduate, I majored in Economics and Statistics, as well as Philosophy. I am interested in algorithmic causal search and machine learning. I am also interested in internet privacy.

My current research is focused on using causal search algorithms and agent based models to inform and test one another. Other research projects include effectively analyzing high dimensional data, and the use of non-probability samples.
