I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Boston University specializing in American politics and public policy.  I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University, and was a National Fellow at the University of Virginia’s Miller Center of Public Affairs.

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.
