My name is Philip Waggoner and I am the Director of Data Science at YouGov America, and an Adjunct Professor of Data Science at Northwestern University and the University of Virginia.

I am also a research scholar at the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy at Columbia University, where I have the pleasure of working a lot with Robert Y. Shapiro.

Formerly, I was a data scientist at Edison Software (now Yipit Data), and before that a member of the graduate computational social science faculty at the University of Chicago.

For more information, see my resume (short) or CV (long).

On the side, I am excited about the Portfolio Project, which is a technology resource I built and maintain as a member of the American Statistical Association Committee on Career Development.

Please reach out directly if you’d like to contribute a post to the Portfolio Project blog re: data science, statistics, professional development, practical interaction with technology, etc.
