I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis, having recently completed my PhD in Political Science at Vanderbilt University. My dissertation focused on how changing communication infrastructure has helped to accelerate the nationalization of US legislative politics. More broadly, I am interested in how new and old media systems interact to affect the political behavior of both voters and legislators.
My work has appeared in the Journal of Politics, Political Behavior, the International Journal of Press/Politics, and is forthcoming in the British Journal of Political Science. I was also a contributor for MSNBC's 2016 election coverage highlighting survey trends.

Outside of my work I love long runs in the woods, playing guitar, rock climbing, and making sure to ride bikes everyday.
