I am the Thomas J. Pearsall Fellow and an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. I study the linkages between inequality in political participation, representation, and public policy. Most of my work examines subnational governments in the United States.

I was previously a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics at Princeton University and received my PhD from the University of California, Berkeley.

You can read some of my work in the American Political Science Review, Political Behavior, and Political Analysis.
