Ideas:
“  In a series of papers (with James D. Morrow), we develop a formal model of multilateral treaty-making. Guided by this theory, we develop an empirical model based on negotiating data collected from the archived records of a dozen of the last few decades’ most significant international conventions. Their goal is to use the models to assist negotiators in finding sets of treaty terms that will appeal to a critical mass of key states, thereby improving prospects for effective global cooperation in areas such as trade, migration and environmental. A second initiative (with co-author Adam Feldman) develops the first judicial ideology measure covering nearly the entire federal judiciary. The measure is derived from text analysis of over 10,000 qualitative judicial evaluations prepared by legal experts. The data will allow researchers to address important questions about judging and judicial behavior that were previously intractable due to data limitations.  ”
