I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia.
I study political psychology and public opinion, mostly in the United States but also in Europe. My core research interests are in how people perceive the social world and how these perceptions affect political preferences and behaviors. I am also deeply interested in political methodology with particular emphasis on measurement of politically relevant beliefs and attitudes beyond standard survey self-reports.
My research has been published in Political Analysis, the Journal of Politics, and Public Opinion Quarterly, among others.
I hold a PhD in Political Science and an MA in Statistics from the University of Michigan.
