I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. My research investigates the relationship between political elites and public opinion, particularly in the context of the American judiciary. In my current work, I examine how elites introduce political conflict to the American judiciary and the consequences of this behavior for how Americans evaluate politics. In some of my other ongoing projects, I study competitiveness in judicial elections, develop new ways of measuring mass attitudes toward how judges behave, and assess public attitudes toward presidential power. My research has been published in the British Journal of Political Science, Political Science Research and Methods, Political Behavior, and Presidential Studies Quarterly.
In my spare time, I enjoy running, spending time outdoors, traveling (pictured, Lake Sevan, Armenia), and watching college football and basketball.
