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. My work has been published or is forthcoming in Public Opinion Quarterly, American Politics Research, and Studies in American Political Development.
