About Me

I am completing my Ph.D. in the Department of Political Science at Stony Brook University, where I am co-recipient of the class of 2019 Milton Lodge Award for outstanding graduate student researcher in political science. Beginning Fall 2019, I will be an Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina. Broadly speaking, my research interests are in political behavior, political communication, and political psychology in American politics. Specifically, my research focuses on the following question: how do people’s social surroundings influence their political values, opinions, and behaviors?
