I am a postdoctoral associate at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies and the Center for the Study of American Politics at Yale University. I received my Ph.D. in government and politics from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2012.

My research interests touch on many themes in American politics and quantitative methodology, including voting behavior, turnout, direct democracy, and election reform.  Much of my current work focuses on how electoral institutions and reforms shape political behavior.

In my current position, I work with professors Alan Gerber and Gregory Huber.
