I am a Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow at Cornell University (2018-2021) and a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Government.
I am an affiliate of the Roper Center for Public Opinion Research and the Center for the Study of Inequality. For the 2019-2020 academic year, I am also a Keeton House Fellow.
I study American politics, political economy, and methodology. My substantive research centers on understanding how citizens form preferences about economic policies, focusing on their demands for redistribution and government spending. I also work on methodology, with interests in experimental design and analysis, causal inference, and applied statistics.
I received my Ph.D. in Political Science (2018) and M.A. in Statistics from Yale University. I was a Graduate Student Fellow at the Institution for Social and Policy Studies (ISPS) and served as the founding manager of the ISPS Behavioral Research Lab.
Prior to graduate school, I was an economic consultant at Analysis Group, Inc. where I worked on complex securities, finance, and insurance matters. I hold an A.B. in Economics and Political Science (Honors) from the University of Chicago. Photo: Dave Burbank.
