About Me


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Government at California State University, Sacramento.

My areas of research are American politics and political methodology. I use experimental methods and survey data to study proximity voting, voters’ decision making processes, and campaigns in the United States. I have substantive interests in political behavior, voting and elections, race and ethnic politics, political campaigns, and public opinion.
