I received my Ph.D. in 2015 from the Travers Department of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley.  I am currently an Assistant Professor of Political Science at San Diego State University.

The goal of my research is to understand the success of the far right: I examine mainstream parties and far-right parties interact with each other and with voters. In my forthcoming book, I explain why mainstream-right parties in Europe bring far-right parties into coalition governments and adopt far-right positions on immigration.

My other interests include experimental methods, design and measurement issues, voting behavior, and public opinion and immigration. To see my current projects, teaching experience, or CV, please use the above links.
