I'm an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Simon Fraser University.
Before joining SFU, I held a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship at Duke University, a Visiting Democracy Fellowship at the Ash Center, Harvard University, and a SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Centre for the Study of Democratic Citizenship, McGill University.
I'm interested in the way inequalities shape communication and action, producing unequal political influence between social groups. Substantively, my research falls into three categories:
The study of political communication, deliberation and democratic innovation;
gender and politics;
and racial, ethnic and settler-colonial politics.
Methodologically, I'm interested in quantitative methods, particularly advances in machine learning, scaling, and dimensional analysis. I'm also interested in experimental design.
At SFU, my teaching will contribute to both the Department of Political Science and the new minor in Social Data Analytics. I'm currently accepting postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and honours' undergraduate students for supervision. Please get in touch if you'd be interested in working with me at SFU.
