My research focuses on how citizens and policymakers form their factual beliefs in politics. In particular, I am interested in the "politics of expertise", i.e., the conditions under which different types of policy-relevant experts succeed or fail to influence policy decisions. I employ a variety of methods, with an emphasis on survey methods and survey experiments. I also have a range of other interests including candidate emergence, energy and environmental policy, interest-group lobbying, and the politics of regulation.

Chloe Lim is a PhD candidate in Political Science at Stanford University. Her primary research interests include media, fact-checking, representation, political accountability in American Politics, quantitative methods, and text as data. Her research examines the media's ability to fact-check politicians and the consequences for campaigns when the media fact-checks a politician's statements. On the one hand, in published research, she shows that the media struggles to fact-check politicians’ statements accurately because it is an inherently subjective task.
