I work with the Data Labs team at Pew Research Center. My research interests include political communication, political behavior, and public opinion. In my research, I apply quantitative methods, including natural language processing, machine learning, measurement models, and econometrics. I received a Ph.D. in Government from the University of Virginia and a B.A. from Colgate University. I’ve published research on political communication strategies, graphical representations of economic information, and the ways that agency accreditation shapes bureaucratic behavior.
