Assistant Research Professor of Statistical Science and Political Science, Duke University
I am an Assistant Research Professor of Statistical Science and Political Science at Duke University and previously was a Lecturing Fellow in the Thompson Writing Program. I have a Ph.D. in Political Science from UNC-Chapel Hill. At UNC, I studied American Politics, Public Policy, and Methods. I also have a M.A. in Political Science from UNC-Chapel Hill and a B.A. in Political Science from Kenyon College.
I have a book forthcoming from University of Michigan Press on the minority party in legislative bodies, focusing especially on the U.S. Congress.
I have also examined political advertising in the context of North Carolina Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry, whose picture appears on official inspection placards in every elevator in the state. Other research projects include an examination of the effect of the Donald Trump nomination on congressional candidate and a study of the effects of gun control policy and mental health access on the rate of gun deaths in the American states.
