I'm an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Brigham Young University. I study political participation, political inequality, democratic accountability, political representation, and education policy.

My work has been published in the American Political Science Review [2], the American Journal of Political Science, the British Journal of Political Science, and the Economics of Education Review. My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation [2]. I'm currently working on a book that explores ways to increase perpetually low rates of civic participation among young people.

My work has been covered by outlets such as the Washington Post, [2] [3], [4], New York Magazine, the Boston Globe, NPR, Bloomberg, Politico, Fast Company, Salon, Business Insider, VoxEu, and FiveThirtyEight.
