I am a computational social scientist, working with the Data Labs team at Pew Research Center. You can read my work here.

My research interests include computational social science methodology, political communication and behavior, and public opinion. I received a Ph.D. in Government from the University of Virginia and a B.A. from Colgate University

My academic research examines the validity of crowdsourcing for content analysis, the strategic use of political advertising, how economic information affects opinion, and the ways that agency accreditation shapes bureaucratic behavior. I use natural language processing, measurement models, and experimental designs in my research.
