I am a political scientist who studies the communicative processes that produce, and those that might reduce, group-based polarization. Much of this work examines the effects of new political institutions inspired by deliberative democratic theory. I am also interested in experimental methods and causal inference in political science. I earned my Ph.D. at Princeton University in 2011, completed post-doctoral work at the University of Michigan, and have been an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota since 2013.
