Harvard's embattled president is facing yet further questions about her academic record, after a statistics expert challenged the data used in a report which helped win her tenure at Stanford.

Claudine Gay, who took over as president in July, has been at the center of a firestorm since the October 7 Hamas attacks. She was seemingly slow to condemn students who justified the terrorist violence, and slow to speak out against antisemitism on campus.

The harsh spotlight has spread to her academic record, with accusations of plagiarism - and on Tuesday, a data scientist challenged her analytical methods. It was then revealed that she had refused to share her data, raising eyebrows in academia.

Jonatan Pallesen, a Copenhagen-based data scientist working for the Confederation of Danish Industry, tweeted that he had examined her use of data in her PhD thesis, and a 2001 American Political Science Review (APSR) paper.

The 2001 paper -  'The Effect of Black Congressional Representation on Political Participation' - was one of four peer-reviewed political science articles which secured her 2005 tenure at Stanford.

Harvard President Refused to Turn Over Data After Academics Challenged Methodology Used in Research: Report
Claudine Gay's application of a common methodology for the 2001 paper was 'logically inconsistent,' two fellow academics wrote
 
 
Harvard University President Claudine Gay refused fellow academics’ request to share her research with them after they challenged the common methodology she used in a 2001 paper that helped her get tenure at Stanford University, according to a new report.

Gay has faced mounting criticism in recent weeks, both over her school’s handling of campus antisemitism amid the Israel-Hamas war and multiple allegations of plagiarism, some of which have resulted in her requesting updates to decades-old academic writings.
