I am an Assistant Professor in Yale University's Department of Political Science and Resident Fellow in the Institution for Social and Policy Studies and Center for the Study of American Politics. My research focuses on the U.S. Congress, political parties, and the policy-making process with a particular emphasis on exploring the role of money in politics. I received my A.B. in Politics and Political Economy from Princeton University (2004) and Ph.D. in Political Science from Harvard University (2009).
