Oda Nedregård

Welcome to my website!

I am a postdoc (Bruno Latour Fellow) at Sciences Po’s Department of Economics, where I study the causal effect of trust in government on green policymaking. I also teach students about the political economy of climate change.

I obtained my PhD in Economics from BI Norwegian Business School. In my dissertation, I used Natural Language Processing to study the behaviour of political elites, with a focus on how political parties are functioning as intermediaries between voters and politicians. At its core, my research touches on the underlying drivers and consequences of political polarization, populism, and (mis)representation. Two years of my PhD were spent at Harvard University as a Visiting Fellow at the Department of Government.

You can find my CV \(\color{darkdarkblue}{\text{here}}\), my Google Scholar profile \(\color{darkdarkblue}{\text{here}}\), and read more about my research \(\color{darkdarkblue}{\text{here}}\)

I am also working on providing an overview of useful resources for students and researchers interested in doing independent research using text-as-data (see \(\color{darkdarkblue}{\text{here}}\)). As of now, the list is mainly targeted to a Norwegian audience.
