My name is Philip Waggoner and I am the Director of Data Science at YouGov America, and an Adjunct Professor of Data Science at 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. Some of my old courses can be found here.

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.
