I study partisan polarization of news media and political campaigns. As part of this work, I develop new methods and measures to address previously unknown or misunderstood methodological pitfalls in the study of partisan polarization. The techniques I develop are broadly applicable whenever scholars are interested in measuring a latent concept or in estimating the effects of major events. With these new methods and measures, I often find more partisan divergence than previous studies have been able to capture.
