Hello! My name is Simon and I am an interdisciplinary research scientist. My main interests are survey research and data transparency. I hold a PhD in Political Science from American University in Washington, DC, a Master’s degree in Social and Political Thought from the University of Warwick in the UK, and a Magister degree in English Linguistics, Communication, and Business from the University of Munich. In 2009, I spent one year abroad at the University of Adelaide in Australia. The son of cosmopolitan parents, I grew up in Lagos, Nigeria, and Cairo, Egypt, attending German schools there. These experiences have enriched my life beyond belief, and I am grateful for them every day.
I currently live in Munich and work as a research scientist at the university hospital rechts der Isar. My work entails programming code for analyses in vascular and endovascular surgery as well as advising and supporting hospital doctors in their scientific research. I also work on projects as a research fellow at the Data Science Center at American University and consult on replication processes at the academic journal Political Analysis.

R shiny. It incorporates an advanced blocking method to assign respondents to treatment conditions.
I spend most of my spare time with the creature below. Her name is Muesli, and she is always hungry. Out of frame is a piece of ham dangling enticingly. I adopted her from a shelter in Washington, DC, as part of my volunteer work to rehabilitate fear-agressive dogs, which I am lucky to be able to continue at a local dog shelter in Munich. Besides Muesli’s company, I also enjoy playing tennis, meditating, and spending time with my nephews and godson.
