Welcome

My name is Tim Marple; I am an Intelligence Analyst with Google Trust & Safety. In my current role, I produce analysis for executive audiences on geopolitical risks facing Google’s users and brand. I am also primary lead for a long-term, cross-team project to systematically measure, analyze, and predict content risks.

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. Please see my Research page for further information on my work and publications. 

I serve as an editorial board member for Business and Politics, an associated researcher for the Berkeley APEC Study Center (BASC), a strategic advisor for Maiden Labs, and as a research mentor with Polygence. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, writing poetry, and hiking. I live in Simi Valley, CA, with my partner, Kate, and two cats, Ophelia & Raisin.
