Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Houston. Previously, I was Postdoctoral Fellow in Survey Research at the Blavatnik School of Government and Non-Stipendiary Research Fellow at Nuffield College at the University of Oxford.

My research is in comparative party politics, political behavior, and political psychology, with geographic interest in Western democracies broadly and the UK specifically. I work on understanding the types of information and messages that voters receive from their representational environment and how they respond to such stimuli. I am particularly interested in understanding moral messaging from political parties, along with how morality works in voter psychology. But in addition to morality and party communication, I also study other types of information and messages that people encounter in sociopolitical life, such as news coverage about policy issues and signals about social norms.

I received my PhD from the Department of Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. Before graduate school, I studied at Underwood International College of Yonsei University in Seoul, South Korea. I received a BA in Political Science and International Relations with highest honors.
