About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Brigham Young University. I study how Americans think about democracy in an era of polarized politics and how presidents influence conceptions of democratic norms. Broadly, my research interests include survey methodology, experimental methods, presidential influence, voter behavior, presidential elections, and gender and politics. I graduated with my PhD in political science from Stanford University in 2022, and graduated from Brigham Young University with my BA in Political Science in 2016.

On the side, I love tennis, Crossfit, Sprinkles cupcakes, and dark chocolate.
