Nicholas Eubank

Assistant Research Scholar

Nick Eubank is an Assistant Research Professor in the Duke Social Science Research Institute (SSRI), where he studies a range of topics related to political accountability, include gerrymandering, social networks, election administration and race and incarceration.

He teaches Practical Data Science and Unifying Data Science as part of the Masters in Interdisciplinary Data Science (MIDS) program.

He is also passionate about ensuring the integrity of social science research, and making computational tools accessible to social scientists to empower them to advance our understanding of the world. To that end, he strives to make all my course materials available (and usable!) to non-Duke students. You can find his GIS in R course here, and my Practical Data Science (which covers command line tools, git and github, Python for Data Science, Jupyter Notebooks, and more!) here. You can also find a talk he gave on the potential value of the Julia programming language for academic research here.
