About

I am interested in the psychological and sociological processes by which facts become contested in politics. I employ a variety of methods, including survey experiments, field experiments, network analysis, and text-as-data to identify the characteristics that determine the incidence and degree of factual belief contestation across issue areas and what kinds of political actors and communication strategies are more or less productive in addressing such disagreements. In addition, I have a range of other interests including the study of bureaucracy, interest-group behavior, and local and state politics.
