Will Lowe

Welcome. I am a political methodologist specializing in statistical text analysis with applications to international relations, legislative politics, and frankly anything else that seems interesting.

I’ve recently joined Q-APS in the Department of Politics at Princeton as Senior Research Specialist. My main task will be to discover what one of those is.

Details of what I write about and the things I teach can be found in the links over to the right or in the trusty CV. You can find also find me answering questions on stats.stackexchange.com, writing code on GitHub, and – inevitably – wittering on Twitter. There’s a blog here too.

Alternatively you can ponder some biographical stuff,¬†or just a picture. Actually I look much older and more worn-out than that, but you’re unlikely to get me to change it before I retire.


I’m teaching the Freshman Scholars Institute for the next month. We’ll be teaching incoming Princeton students – fresh out of high school – the material that I’d normally give graduate students. Princeton, eh?
