I am a computational social scientist, working with the Data Labs team at Pew Research Center. My research interests include political communication, political behavior, and public opinion. I received a Ph.D. in Government from the University of Virginia and a B.A. from Colgate University. I’ve published research about elite political communication, graphical representations of economic information, and the ways that agency accreditation shapes bureaucratic behavior. I use natural language processing, measurement models, and experimental designs in my research.
