PhD candidate in the Department of Politics, Princeton University
Lauren Mattioli is a doctoral candidate at Princeton University, QTM fellow, and instructor in Emory’s political science department. Lauren studies American political institutions. Her dissertation focusses on how presidents interact with the federal judiciary to pursue policy goals. For the 2017-2018 academic year Lauren is teaching undergraduate Research Design and developing a book manuscript based on her dissertation research.
Paul Zachary (pre-doctoral)
PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science, University of California, San Diego
Paul Zachary is a PhD candidate in political science at the University of California, San Diego and a visiting scholar at Emory University's Institute for Quantitative Theory and Methods. His research focuses on the behavioral impacts of exposure to policing and crime. Methodologically, he is developing new tools to infer political and social context from social media data.
Ka Ming Fung (pre-doctoral)
Paul Zachary (pre-doctoral)
PhD student in the Department of Political Science, University of California, San Diego
Paul's research agenda addresses political conflict in a number of settings. Paul's dissertation project concerns how exposure to crime influences political behavior. He is currently developing an original data set on every felony arrest made in Washington state in 2011-2012. These data are then matched to voting records in Washington.

Alberto Purpura (pre-doctoral)
BE in Information Engineering, now ME student in Computer Engineering at University of Padua, Italy.
Works with professor Roberto Franzosi (Emory) on PC-ACE (Program for Computer-Assisted Coding of Events) since March 2015 and developed various NLP solutions for Quantitative Narrative Analysis. Will collaborate with professor Franzosi implementing new Natural Language Processing tools to classify verbal data automatically and extract Subject-Verb-Object triplets from narrative text.
Research Project Manager, Rollins School of Public Health
His research focuses on understanding ice microphysical processes in clouds and how aerosols, dynamics, and microphysics influence cloud structure and lifetime. He is interested in cloud physics and boundary-‐layer dynamics, particularly in understanding the complicated interactions between cloud microphysics, dynamics and radiation in mixed-‐phase clouds and their correct representation in numerical models.
Although his research until now has been focused explicitly on mixed-‐phase boundary-‐layer clouds, he is now going to implement his skill sets to broaden his scope and apply his knowledge to other type of clouds, specifically those in South Asia. He is researching cloud microphysics and dynamics and collaborating on aerosol-‐cloud interactions with Dr. Eri Saikawa in Environmental Sciences at Emory.

Assistant Professor of Mathematics, University of Houston
Collaborated with professor Alessandro Veneziani and Luca Bertagna on a research project involving a Leray model with a deconvolution-based indicator function for the simulation of incompressible fluid flow at moderately large Reynolds number with under-resolved meshes. For the implementation of the model, they adopted a three-step algorithm called evolve-filter-relax (EFR) that requires the solution of a Navier-Stokes problem, the solution of a Stokes-like problem to filter the Navier-Stokes velocity field, and a final relaxation step.
