I study American political institutions, specifically the presidency, Congress, and the separation of powers. My research leverages formal modeling and text-as-data methods to understand strategic interactions between the president, Congress, and the public. My dissertation focuses on presidential rhetoric and agenda-setting in a polarized era. My research has recently appeared in Political Science Research and Methods and Public Opinion Quarterly.

I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. You can get in touch with me at
