Biography

I am Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science and Associate Professor of Civic Studies at Tufts' Tisch College. The focus of my writing and teaching is American politics. I study civic participation, voting rights, 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 second book, Politics is for Power, was published in January 2020. My first book, Hacking the Electorate, was published in 2015 (Cambridge UP). 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.
