Welcome!

You’ve reached Will Lowe’s homepage. I am a political methodologist specializing in statistical text analysis with applications to international relations, legislative politics, and frankly anything else that seems interesting. Formally I’m Senior Researcher at Eurodata in the MZES, part of the University of Mannheim. As of January this year I’m also part of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB 884.

Details of what I write about and the things I teach can be found in the links above or in the trusty CV. You can find also find me answering questions on stats.stackexchange.com, writing code on GitHub, R-Forge and Sourceforge, 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.

Come January I’ll be escaping the cold by teaching some quantitative text analysis at Texas A&M and then, with a bit of luck, reminding myself of what winter’s really like with Professor P. at McGill.
