My name is Tim Marple; I am an Intelligence Analyst with Google (via Adecco) focused on synthesizing and analyzing cross-product trust risks facing users and serving as project lead in cross-team risk quantification efforts. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley (2022), and my B.A. (2016) and M.A. (2017) in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
My research broadly focuses on dynamics of regulatory decision-making and uncertainty in international political economy, with methodological focuses on quantitative research, survey experiments, and social network analysis. I have published research on topics ranging from the role of social distance in regulatory advocacy at the SEC, to homophily among central bankers during the 2008 crisis. My dissertation research focused on the political economy of cross-border strategic interaction in central bank digital currencies.
In my free time, I enjoy painting, cooking, and writing poetry and Sci-Fi short stories. I live in Simi Valley, CA, with my partner, Kate, and two cats, Ophelia & Raisin.
