I am an Assistant Professor at Texas Tech’s Political Science Department. I received my PhD from the University of California, San Diego, and completed a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at Dartmouth's John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding.

My research interests lie at the intersection of public opinion and international relations. My book project develops and tests a theory of when and why leaders can benefit from addressing foreign audiences. You can find my CV here.
