I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Riverside. I received my PhD from the University of Pittsburgh in 2014. I have broad research interests in comparative political behavior and elections. My current work analyzes how different aspects of the political environment shape citizens' attitudes and political behavior. In particular, my research investigates the institutional and contextual factors that have an impact on political engagement. My research has been published in the British Journal of Political Science, Comparative Political Studies, Political Research Quarterly, the European Journal of Political Research, Political Behavior, Electoral Studies, and many other journals.
