I am a postdoctoral researcher at MIT in the Department of Political Science & Sloan School of Management. Beginning in September 2023 I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Stony Brook University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Duke University in 2021, where I was a member of the Duke Polarization Lab and Duke Initiative on Survey Methodology.
My research is at the intersection of political behavior and methodology, with a specific focus on misinformation, polarization, and social media. I draw on theories from cognitive and social psychology and use a wide range of methods, including field experiments, surveys, and natural language processing with social media data.
My work has been published in the American Journal of Political Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and Public Opinion Quarterly (here and here).
