Andrew Eggers (Q-Step Director)
I never liked being asked "What do you want to do when you grow up?" because I wanted to do everything. As it turns out, as a political scientist it seems I get to do almost everything -- some math, some stats, some history, some philosophy, even some literature. I came to my PhD in political science in a circuitous way (through a BA in history and an MA in economics) and I continue to do work in a variety of areas -- corruption/accountability, electoral systems, British political development, methodology. I love the process of thinking hard about a problem, making progress on it, and communicating what I have learned. I also love writing code and watching the computer do my bidding. Outside of work I like running, playing music (especially fiddle), and going walking in the countryside.
