I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Barnard College, Columbia University specializing in American politics.
My substantive research and teaching interests include public opinion, political parties and their relationship to interest groups, fiscal politics, and American political development. Methodologically, I am interested in applying new tools for data management, analysis, and visualization to the study of politics and history. My work has been published in Public Opinion Quarterly, Studies in American Political Development, and American Politics Research (winning the 2018 Hahn-Sigelman Prize, with Kelly Rader, for the best paper published in that journal in 2017).
I received my PhD from Columbia University, and served as an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Boston University before joining the faculty at Barnard.
