A. Jordan Nafa

Welcome to my personal website. I am a Quantitative Social Scientist and Teaching Fellow in the Department of Political Science at the University of North Texas. I have five years’ experience working both independently and in collaboration with colleagues to model data and provide insights necessary to answer research questions. My core skills include research design, causal inference, quasi-experimental methods, multilevel analysis, advanced data analytics in R, Stan, and Python, survey research, and applied Bayesian inference.

At present, my work is focused at the intersection of applied Bayesian statistics and causal inference with a substantive focus on women in politics and comparative political behavior. More information on my background and recent projects can be found on the about and projects sections of the site or my github, respectively. I also write occasional blog posts on applied Bayesian statistics, causal inference, and data science.
