Much of my current research—especially within the legal technology theme—involves coding (computer programming). Over the past two years I’ve been developing an innovative approach to studying how United Kingdom law works in practice with the help of software I code specifically for my research (see the legal technology theme).
I’m now designing larger research projects that will involve a team of collaborators. For those projects, I’m considering cloud-based architectures relying on microservices, including some serverless cloud functions, and a real-time document database. This kind of research infrastructure can revolutionize the quality of research in social science, which lags significantly behind the standards adopted, for example, in medical research (eg by adopting full traceability of all data operations). If you are interested in DevOps for social science, I’m keen to exchange ideas!
I built this website using Hugo and the Academic theme for Hugo, which I customized quite significantly. The graphic design is a result of a collaboration between me and my sister, a talented designer.
The website’s code is hosted on GitHub and deployed through Netlify.
