Yuri Kasahara


My research focus on understanding policy development and implementation in different sectors, as well as their political consequences. My main regional expertise is on Latin America, particularly Brazil. I am also particularly fond of applying different methods on my projects. Recently, I have been applying data science methods and machine learning in projects analyzing large amounts of text data.
