I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at the University of Michigan in 2018. I study political psychology, political behavior, and public opinion, both in the U.S. and in comparative contexts.

My research examines key dynamics in political psychology including biased information processing, framing, and the drivers of populist voting. To date, my research has been published in a variety of journals, including the Journal of Politics, Political Psychology, Political Behavior, Public Opinion Quarterly, Perspectives on Politics, and the Journal of Experimental Political Science (see publications in Google Scholar). 

Some of my current research focuses on testing interventions to reduce the racial divide in reactions to police shootings. This project builds on published collaborative research and is funded by the Russell Sage Foundation. Another strand of my research aims to explore the drivers of populist voting, focusing on the role of both populist attitudes and voters' substantive issue positions and attitudes.

At Arizona State University, I teach courses related to Political Psychology and Experimental Design. During my postdoctoral year I helped develop an online MA Program in Political Psychology for which I now regularly teach classes on "Cognition and Emotions" and "Media Effects".

Prior to my Ph.D. I received an M.Phil in Politics (European Politics and Society) from the University of Oxford and a B.Sc. in European Politics, Society and Economics from the University of Birmingham.
