I am an assistant professor of political science at Yale University.
My principal research interest lies in political persuasion and its implications for the malleability of public opinion in the context of elections. I use results from a series of novel survey experiments to show that persuasion is a commonplace occurrence in American political life: people, regardless of background or ideology, update their attitudes and beliefs in the direction of new political information. My interests extend beyond persuasion to the causes of mass political participation and the design and analysis of randomized experiments.
