I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at UC Berkeley. Prior to joining Berkeley I received a B.A. from Carleton College, a Ph.D from NYU, and taught at Cornell.

My research uses formal models to study topics like authoritarian politics, communication and information manipulation, and conflict. Most of my current work explores the causes and political consequences of “nonstandard” belief formation.
