I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government and the Program in Quantitative Social Science at Dartmouth College. I study political partisanship and representation. In my work I develop novel experimental designs to show the causal effects of legislator action and partisanship on behavior. I contextualize these results with large-scale computational text analyses of legislator communication.

My work appears in the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, Communication Research, Political Communication, and in a book published by Princeton University Press.

Areas of interest: Political Behavior, Computational Social Science, Political Institutions
