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 interests are in comparative party politics, political behavior, and political psychology. I study party messages, voter attitudes, and voter behavior in Western democracies. I am particularly interested in understanding how morality works in party competition and voter psychology. But I also explore other questions related to how the informational environment influences the public. My work on these topics has been published in the American Journal of Politics Science, Electoral Studies, Journal of Elections, Public Opinion & Parties, and Journal of Politics.
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.
