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


To understand how some actors work to help prevent destructive consequences of misinformed or prejudiced beliefs that often diverge over party lines, my research focuses on:

1) What tactics do media and civil society organizations use to build public trust in evidence-based sources, such as fact-checking?

2) Do shared experiences and emotions facilitate common ground across party lines?

3) How can social sciences approach these important questions using careful measurement and inferences?


My methodological expertise lies in designing and conducting surveys and experiments, and measurement of psychological tendencies not directly observable.


My research has been supported by the Gerald R. Ford Fellowship, the Garth Taylor Dissertation Fellowship in Public Opinion, and the Converse-Miller Fellowship in American Political Behavior, among others. I am a Next Generation scholar at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan.
