I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, specializing in American politics and quantitative methods. Beginning in August 2020, I will be a visiting assistant professor at the University of Houston. In my research, I am interested in public opinion, public policy, the macro polity, race and inequality. My dissertation, People Like Us? American Preferences for Bigger Government, is supported by a National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant. Throughout 2019, I conducted dissertation fieldwork in South Carolina and West Virginia. Jim Stimson and I have co-authored Converging on Truth: A Dynamic Perspective on Factual Debates in American Public Opinion published by Cambridge University Press Elements Series.
