My research interests center on the process of representation in U.S. national and state politics.   More specifically, I study electoral behavior, campaigns, political parties, public opinion, and legislative politics in the U.S.  I am particularly interested in the role that contextual factors such as campaign information, the socio-demographic make-up of a place, institutions, and elite signals play in shaping political behavior, public opinion, and decision-making.  I also have a strong interest in research methods, including issues of design, multilevel and pooled data, data science, and Monte Carlo simulation and resampling.

For those who are interested, here is a link to my CV.
