Assistant Professor of Political Communication, LSU
I am an assistant professor of political communication in the Manship School of Mass Communication and the Political Science Department at Louisiana State University. I received my Ph.D. in political science from the University of Pennsylvania in May 2015, and my B.A. in political science from Boston College in May 2009. I am also an occasional contributor at FiveThirtyEight.
I study American government and political communication, with an emphasis on political behavior, campaign strategy, and the media. My research has appeared in Political Communication, American Politics Research, and Presidential Studies Quarterly, and is forthcoming in Journal of Communication, Social Science Quarterly, and the International Journal of Public Opinion Research.
