Welcome


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I received my PhD in political science from Stony Brook University. My research focuses on the psychological underpinnings of political attitudes, reasoning, and behavior. I am especially interested in the development and application of new statistical methods in the area of political psychology. For example, I use quantitative text analysis to study how citizens discuss and justify their political preferences and beliefs in open-ended survey responses as well as online discussions.

Outside of academia, I enjoy cycling, hiking, climbing, and photography. I am also a fan of the German card game Skat. Here's a little Shiny app that keeps track of our group's game statistics.
