During the 2023-2024 academic year, I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Digital Society Project and will be based at North Dakota State University in Fargo. I received my Ph.D. in political science from UW Milwaukee Political Science Department. 

I am a political scientist comparatively studying undemocratic politics, with a substantive focus on affective polarization and social networks, and a methodological focus on computational analyses and survey experiments. 

My research and/or writing has appeared in diverse outlets, including The Washington Post and peer-reviewed Democratization, Computation, and Ethnopolitics. Outlets such as POTUS Radio's The Trendline and The Atlantic have covered my research. I am also the research manager of the Digitial Society Project, funded by the National Science Foundation.

Here is an up-to-date CV.
