Biography
The focus of my writing and teaching is American politics. I study civic participation and the relationship between election rules, strategies, and the behavior of voters. Much of my work utilizes large databases of personal records to study political behavior.

My book, Hacking the Electorate, was published by Cambridge in 2015. My peer-reviewed articles have been published in venues such as the American Political Science Review, American Journal of Political Science, Journal of Politics, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

I am currently writing a second book, a theory of political hobbyism.
