Welcome!

 I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Ohio State University. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Michigan in 2020. My research is supported by the National Science Foundation, Russell Sage Foundation, and the Hanes Walton Award in Racial and Ethnic Politics Research, as well as several other fellowships, grants, and awards. My full CV can be accessed here.

My research interests center on advancing understandings of race and ethnic politics, public opinion, political behavior, and research design in the American context. My methodological expertise is primarily in designing, conducting, and analyzing surveys and experiments, as well as experience with qualitative interviewing and analysis.

My dissertation, The Politics of Skin Color, demonstrates that studying race in a more fine-grained fashion adds value to our understanding of the landscape of American racial politics. I apply a mixed-methods approach in my research: analyzing multiple survey datasets, conducting and analyzing 67 in-depth interviews, and designing and conducting multiple experiments. My project provides further insight into the multidimensional nature of race with important implications for policy-makers, political candidates, as well as a general framework that can be adapted and extended across groups and contexts.
