I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Riverside
. My research focuses on political methodology
and comparative political behavior
. My interests lie on the intersection of political psychology, political economy, political methodology, and the micro- and macro-foundations of political behavior. I have investigated the relationshiop between socioeconomic conditions, cognitive perceptions about the socioeconomic environment, opinion formation, and political behavior. In my research, I use a variety of instruments for empirical analysis, including survey and survey experiments to investigate how different groups react to information about the causes of inequality, the state of the economy, and social demand for welfare policies. See my research page for more details.
My research in political methodology focuses on machine learning, Bayesian statistics, computational methods, and causal inference. I have worked with semi-parametric Bayesian models to deal with latent confounders in experimental and observational research. You can find a sample of my published and current working papers here.
