About Me

I study and teach Political Communication and American Politics. My research draws on scholarship in public opinion, media effects, political participation, civic engagement, and public policy.

My current projects explore the intersection of digital media and political behavior with a focus on youth. I am particularly interested in the influence of digital media technologies on the political socialization of youth and acquisition of political information from non-traditional sources.

I’ve been appointed as a 2015-2016 UNM Teaching Fellow to develop and study a Twitter-based curricular component for introductory American politics courses.
