Welcome to my homepage.  I am part of the Division of Social Science at NYU Abu Dhabi and a member of the Social Science Experimental Laboratory (SSEL).

I work primarily in American Politics, with a focus on voting behavior and collective action.  With respect to the latter, I am interested in the nastier side of other-regarding behavior: cheating, spite, discrimination, and changing rules to target opposition groups.  While much of my published work uses observational and survey data, I also run experiments and am developing tools to adapt experiments to meet the challenges of new technologies and subject pools.  I teach a variety of courses from introductory politics and policy to research methods to advanced math for social scientists.  Less formally, I mentor advanced undergraduates (like those below) in independent research, experimental design, and programming.  In my spare time, I rescue stray animals and train/photograph pets.  Beyond easily trainable dogs, I have successfully taught a cat to follow more than a dozen verbal and gestured commands.
