Biographical sketch and research interests

I received my PhD in 2016 from Georgetown University (with a focus on American Politics), and am currently an assistant professor at Miami University (Ohio). My substantive research interests include political parties, ideology, activism, Congress, and rhetoric. My methodology interests include text-as-data applications and social network analysis, along with other techniques. My book, `How the Tea Party Captured the GOP: Insurgent Factions in American Politics,’ is forthcoming with the University of Chicago Press.
