I am a social scientist studying the consequences of context on political and civic behavior.


My research shows that who and what we encounter as we go about our everyday lives affects the policies we support and how we interact with government. Specializing in causal inference, field experiments, and spatial and geographic analysis, I develop new approaches to the study of social and physical context. 


I am an Assistant Professor of Politics and Data Science at the London School of Economics. I previously worked at the University of California, Merced as an Assistant Professor of Political Science. I received my PhD from the Harvard University Department of Government, and earned an MPA from the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. I am a member of Evidence in Governance in Politics (EGAP)
