I am a Joint Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science and Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. Beginning fall 2019, I will join Vanderbilt University as an Assistant Professor of Political Science.

I study American public opinion, political communication and political psychology, with a focus on economic mobility and income inequality. My dissertation explains why many Americans believe in the prospect of upward economic mobility despite growing wealth disparities. My work has been published or forthcoming in the International Organization, Research & Politics, and Quarterly Journal of Political Science. I received my M.A. in Statistics from the Wharton School, and a B.A. in Government from Harvard University.
