I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at the University of Michigan.

My research investigates ways to build common ground across party lines by focusing on two main questions: 1) How can we build bipartisan trust in evidence-based information, such as political fact-checking and scientific research? 2) Can shared experiences and emotions facilitate common ground across party lines?

My methodological expertise lies in designing and conducting surveys and experiments, and in applying latent variable models to measure individuals’ emotions, perceptions, and tendencies.
