I am an Associate Professor of Political Science and Economics (by courtesy) at SUNY-Stony Brook. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. I previously taught at the University of Rochester. My research interests include voting behavior, legislative institutions, electoral systems, methodology, and formal theory. I am currently studying representation, campaign finance, political advertising, clientelism, economic voting, and media coverage of the economy.
