I am the Associate Director of Baldwin Wallace University's Community Research Institute (BW-CRI) and an Assistant Professor of Political Science. My research lies at the intersection of political communication, political behavior, and public opinion. One focus of my work is on the relationship between digital media use and political participation. A recent project, for instance, examined how connective forms of social media use can mobilize LGBT Americans to participate in politics. I also teach courses on American politics, Ohio politics, parties and elections, the media, and research methods. I welcome media inquiries.
