I am a visiting assistant professor in the department of political science at the University of Houston for the 2020-2021 academic year. I received my Ph.D. in political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2020, specializing in American politics and quantitative methods. In my research, I am interested topics related to 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.
