I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at Tufts University. The focus of my writing and teaching is American politics. I mainly study US elections and civic participation. I earned a PhD from Harvard in 2011 and served on faculty at Yale from 2011-2017. In 2022, I am a recipient of the Emerson Collective Fellowship.
My second book, Politics is for Power, was published in 2020. My first book, Hacking the Electorate, was published in 2015. My peer-reviewed articles have been published in venues such as the American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. My public writings have appeared in New York Times, The Atlantic, Boston Globe, USA Today, and other outlets. I regularly testify in litigation involving election issues.
My next major research project, now underway, is about the civic role of businesses and business leaders.
