All peer reviewed articles are Open Access (free to read, re-use, and share). Where applicable, the raw/treated data and code are also freely available, and I’m happy to provide additional resources or details upon request. For articles in review/prep or in press, message me, and I’ll be happy to send along the most up-to-date version in advance (although they are usually made available below). My PhD thesis is also freely available on Figshare here.
