Hello! My name is Simon and I am an interdisciplinary social/research scientist. 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 research on vascular and endovascular surgery in R and SAS as well as advising and supporting hospital doctors in their scientific research. I am also a research fellow at the Center for Data Science at American University and a replicator for the academic journal Political Analysis.
