I am a Professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College. My research, which focuses on misperceptions about politics and health care, has been published in journals including the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Pediatrics, and Vaccine. (My publications and working papers are listed below; see my curriculum vitae or Google Scholar profile for more.) I have been named an Andrew Carnegie Fellow by the Carnegie Corporation of New York (2018-2019) and a Belfer Fellow by the Anti-Defamation League (2019-2020). In 2017, I was given the Emerging Scholar Award for the top scholar in the field who is within 10 years of their Ph.D. from the American Political Science Association's section on Elections, Public Opinion, and Voting Behavior.

I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Duke University and previously served as a RWJ Scholar in Health Policy Research and Professor of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.

I am currently a contributor to The Upshot at The New York Times and a co-founder of Bright Line Watch, a watchdog group that monitors the status of American democracy. From 2011-2014, I served as a media critic for Columbia Journalism Review.

Previously, I was a founder and editor of Spinsanity, a non-partisan watchdog of political spin that was syndicated in Salon and the Philadelphia Inquirer, along with Ben Fritz and Bryan Keefer. We also co-authored All the President's Spin, a New York Times bestseller that named one of the ten best political books of 2004. I also worked as a marketing and fundraising consultant for Benetech, a Silicon Valley technology nonprofit, and Deputy Communications Director of the Bernstein for US Senate campaign in Nevada.
