Supporting data from my journal publications is provided below.  In many cases, these datasets were labor-intensive to produce but in the interest of transparency, I am providing them here.  I ask that you please cite the relevant journal publication as noted below if you make use of these datasets in your own research.  If you are unsure about how to use the data responsibly, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  I will update these as often as possible but if there is a particular dataset that you want and don’t see here, please contact me via email.
