I study American public opinion, political communication and political psychology, with a focus on economic mobility and income inequality. My book project explains why many Americans believe in the prospect of upward economic mobility despite growing wealth disparities. My work has been published or forthcoming in the International Organization, Research & Politics, and Quarterly Journal of Political Science.
I received a Joint Ph.D. in Political Science and Communication from University of Pennsylvania, a M.A. in Statistics from the Wharton School, and a B.A. in Government from Harvard University.
