I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Boston University, a Civic Tech Fellow in the Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences, and a Faculty Fellow at the Initiative on Cities
I study American political institutions, including Congress, electoral institutions, and local political institutions. I am particularly interested in how institutional arrangements and rules impact representation and policy outcomes. I also work as a consultant and expert witness on questions about voting rights, redistricting, and representation.
I received my Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University in 2014. I graduated from Bowdoin College in 2008 with an A.B. in Government and Mathematics.
