About me

My work focuses on how institutions, public policy, and the physical environment shape preferences and behavior related to climate change. I use a combination of experiments, public opinion data, and formal theory to answer questions such as: When do people support climate change mitigation policies? How do we govern emerging technologies (e.g., geoengineering) in the context of climate change? I am also more broadly interested in political behavior, and how public opinion is shaped by disasters. While most of my work focuses on institutions and behavior in the United States, I also work with a team studying climate change literacy across Africa. 

I am an assistant professor in the department of political science at the University of Connecticut. Previously, I was a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University in the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics. I earned my PhD in the department of Political Science at Stony Brook University in August of 2020.
