Hello. I am a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College, a Senior Data Scientist (Research Fellow) at the Tokyo Foundation for Policy Research, and a Visiting Scholar in the Donia Human Rights Center at the University of Michigan. Starting fall 2020, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Government at Dartmouth College. My research focuses on fairness in politics, with applications to the study of discrimination, repression, human rights, policing, and immigration. Specifically, I examine under what circumstances political actors and institutions treat members of the public differently based on their political views or personal demographics, and how the public views this treatment. Understanding these phenomena is important as perceptions of fairness are fundamental to public evaluations of institutional legitimacy across regimes. Methodologically, I am interested in research design, experiments, and using computational tools to better understand the social world. I have published my research in the American Journal of Political Science, the British Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, and Political Analysis, among other journals.
Countries where I have conducted or am conducting research.
Prior to attending graduate school, I worked as a congressional staffer, a photojournalist for state and local papers, and as an English teacher in Belarus, among other things. These experiences inform many of my research projects. When I am not working, I enjoy playing basketball, taking photographs, watching Manchester United play, and cooking (particularly Russian cuisine). Thanks for stopping by my site!
