During my studies and since, I've freelanced for the London School of Economics and Political Science's Government department, building software to aid in data collection and analysis for political science research.

I contributed to Hagemann, Hobolt and Wratil's 2016 paper "Government Responsiveness in the European Union: Evidence From Council Voting", building tools to speed research assistants' data collection on European Union legislation by scraping EU websites and automatically pulling out the most important information.

Other contributions I made form the basis of future papers still to be published, including:
