I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Houston. My Ph.D. in political science is from Duke University, where I was also a member of Scott Huettel's neuroscience laboratory in Duke's Psychology and Neuroscience department. I am a faculty affiliate of the Political Psychology Research Group (PPRG) at Stanford University. I am a quantitative methodologist specializing in causal inference and experimental methods. My work uses eye tracking to obtain direct measures of decision processes, information accrual, and attention. Substantively, I study questions of voter behavior, with a particular emphasis on candidate choice.
