I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Barnard College, Columbia University. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Political Science at Northwestern University in 2019.
I study American politics, with a broad focus on understanding and explaining political power in the U.S. My research and teaching interests engage with interest groups and political parties, social identity and political ideology, inequality and representation, and American political development.
Along with Benjamin Page and Jason Seawright, I am the co-author of Billionaires and Stealth Politics, a book that details the political preferences and behavior of U.S. billionaires. I am currently working on a book project that uses the case of the National Rifle Association to identify and explain how interest groups can shape their members’ behavior in ways that help them advance their political agendas.
