Hi! Welcome to my website. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at Princeton University. My research interests include public opinion, racial attitudes and voting behavior.
I am currently working on my book project, which is tentatively titled, “Race-ing for Votes: How Candidates Use Racial Appeals to Win Elections in Majority White Jurisdictions.” I am a recipient of a National Science Foundation’s Time-Sharing in Experimental Social Sciences Research Grant, as well as a grant from the Center for the Study of Public Policy in Diverse Societies. My dissertation, “The Effectiveness of Implicit and Explicit Racial Appeals in a ‘Post-racial’ America”” was awarded the 2014 Best Dissertation Award in Race and Ethnic Politics from the American Political Science Association.
