About Me

I am a postdoc for both the Democracy and Polarization Lab and American National Election Studies (ANES) at Stanford University. Broadly, my research focuses on political methodology, partisan polarization, and political media. Specifically, I develop new statistical tools and techniques to measure the nature, causes, and consequences of political polarization in American politics. My research is published or forthcoming at Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, American Political Science Review, The Journal of Politics, and Political Analysis.
