I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Chicago. Most of my research explores how intraparty divisions drive patterns of lawmaking, institutional development, and party leadership in Congress. I received my Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley’s Department of Political Science in 2014. From 2014-2016, I was a Robert Wood Johnson Scholar in Health Policy Research at Harvard University. My research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, Social Science Research Council, Dirksen Congressional Center, and the University of Chicago's Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society.
