As architect of the Comparative Agendas Project website and former manager of the Policy Agendas Project, I developed strategies for curating, visualizing, analyzing, and sharing data online. These projects help political scientists to develop and test theories and make it easier for laypersons to investigate the dynamics of government.
Comparative Agendas Project Website
The Comparative Agendas Project (CAP) is the global extension of the U.S. based Policy Agendas Project. It brings together twenty three international sister projects that have collected data on the policy outputs of their respective national and subnational governments. As architect of the new Comparative Agendas Project website, I led a global team of developers, designers, researchers, professors, graduate students and consultants to organize, visualize, and share policy data from projects around the world. Among the website's innovations is a trends analysis tool that enables scholars, students, policy-makers and the media to investigate trends in policy-making across time and between countries.
Policy Agendas Project
The Policy Agendas Project (PAP) collects and organizes data from various archived sources to trace changes in the American national policy agenda and public policy outcomes since the Second World War. During my last years at the University of Texas, I managed the PAP research team, as well as the transition of our data to the new Comparative Agendas Project website.
