I am a Science of Science Communication postdoctoral fellow at the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania (based at Yale University).
I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Minnesota, where I was also a National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellow and Distinguished Doctoral Dissertation Fellow.
My current and future research focuses on Americans' attitudes toward science, experts, and science communication more generally. I am especially interested in the effect of interest in science on opinion toward scientists and scientific consensus, as well as the political implications of anti-expert attitudes. My broader research agenda touches on a wide range of topics in public opinion, political psychology, and mass communication.
