About Me: Professional

My work uses statistical methods to better understand political processes and outcomes. My interests are wide-ranging and they include: public opinion and elections, lawmaking in the U.S. Congress, campaigns and elections, political representation, public policy and the uses and abuses of statistical methods for understanding political phenomena.

My graduate degrees are from Stanford University, where I earned a Ph.D. in Political Science, an M.S. in Statistics, and a M.A. in Economics.  I double-majored in Political Science and Economics at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY, and I graduated high school from Holland Patent Central High School in Holland Patent, NY.
