I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Government Department and an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science. My applied research studies the links between the design of American political institutions and the behavior of elected officials. To aid in this research, I also develop statistical methods. This includes work on scaling candidates using roll-call votes and using campaign contributions, as well as work on causal inference and text analysis. For more information on my work, please see all of my papers here.
