I am Director of Data Science at the Program for Opinion Research and Election Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. My research focuses on elections, public opinion, and local politics, primarily in the United States. I am particularly interested in how economic and social context influence politics. I also work as an elections analyst with the NBC News Decision Desk. I teach classes on data science and survey research.
My research has been published in the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Politics, Political Science Research and Methods, and Political Analysis. My work has been funded by the Russell Sage Foundation, Stanford’s Institute for Research in the Social Sciences, the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, and Stanford Impact Labs.
Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton’s Center for the Study of Democratic Politics. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Stanford University in 2021. Before that, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.A. in political science and economics, and a minor in math.
