I'm a political scientist who specializes in international law, norms, and organizations and public opinion on foreign policy. I'm also an expert in survey and experimental methodology. My work appears in peer-reviewed publications such as the Journal of Conflict Resolution, Journal of Experimental Political Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and World Politics.

I'm currently based at Stanford University, where I'm a lecturer and an affiliated scholar at the Bill Lane Center. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Perry World House at the University of Pennsylvania. ​I received a B.A. in Political Science from UC San Diego, and a Ph.D. also in political science from Stanford University, where I was a U.S. National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow.

Outside the academy, I am the Director of Research at CivicPulse, a nonprofit organization that I co-founded that is dedicated to empowering local governments in the United States in part by facilitating policy-relevant surveys of local officials. You can also always find me on the constant lookout for good places to hike, eat, and listen to classical music.
