My research focuses on American Politics, and is motivated by a desire to understand how the interactions among the mass public and elites, political institutions, and policies explain important outcomes.

While the particular set of topics that I write about has evolved over time, I remain centrally interested in how individuals think about the government, how these attitudes are shaped by government action and political campaigns, and how those beliefs in turn shape citizens' political activities and government policy.

I draw on multiple methodologies in my research, including field interviews, formal modeling, survey and administrative records analysis, and different types of experimental approaches.

Portable Behavior Lab

Portable Behavior Lab

In 2016 I developed a portable behavior lab, which consists of 20+ wirelessly networked laptops connected to a portable server. The server runs Otree, a web-based platform for behavioral games.

The lab, which allows reaching subjects who are often unavailable in on-campus subject pools, is therefore a portable equivalent to an on-campus behavioral lab.
