Yuki Shiraito works primarily in the field of political methodology. His research interests center on the development and applications of Bayesian statistical models and large-scale computational algorithms for data analysis. He has applied these quantitative methods to political science research including a survey experiment on public support for conflicting parties in civil war, heterogeneous effects of indiscriminate state violence, and the detection of text diffusion among a large set of legislative bills.
