I am an Assistant Professor in the Government Department at the College of William & Mary. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor in the Political Science Department and an affiliate faculty member of the Women's and Gender Studies Department and the Latinx Studies Program at the University of Oklahoma. While at OU I co-founded the Community Engagement + Experiments Lab. I received my PhD from the Political Science Department at Stanford University in 2015.
My research interests are primarily in the field of American political behavior and include the politics of identity and the carceral state. My work has been supported by the Graduate Research Opportunity at Stanford University, the Laboratory for the Study of American Values, the Junior Faculty Fellowship at the University of Oklahoma, the Paul G. Risser Innovative Teaching Fellowship, and the Social Science Research Council. My research has been published in outlets including The Journal of Politics, Political Behavior, Politics, Groups, and Identities, and the Journal of Experimental Political Science. You can see some of my research featured at the Monkey Cage on the Washington Post.
