I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Barnard College specializing in American politics.  I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University, and was a National Fellow at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center of Public Affairs from 2012-2013 and an Assistant Professor of political science at Boston University from 2013-2016.

My substantive research and teaching interests include public opinion, political parties and their relationship to interest groups, fiscal politics, and the politics of race and gender. Methodologically, I am interested in applying new tools for data management, analysis, and visualization to the study of politics and history.
