I specialize in political methodology and legislative behavior, with an interest in the application of texts-as-data, Bayesian statistics, item response theory and generalized linear models in political science. My substantive field is comparative politics, and I focus primarily on the United Kingdom. I'm especially interested in British Political Development for the period after the Great Reform Act.
I received my PhD from the University of Rochester, Department of Political Science, in 2008. From 2008, I was an Assistant Professor and then the John L. Loeb Associate Professor of the Social Sciences in the Department of Government at Harvard University.
I am the faculty coordinator for the NYU Text-as-Data speaker series.
