Personal profile

Research interests

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Minnesota. I am interested in political psychology, political communication, and experimental methods. My research focuses on democratic deliberation as a form of civic engagement. This work draws on political psychology, political communication and game theory to examine what happens when citizens deliberate and how to design deliberative institutions. My second line of research examines how stories are used to advance political arguments, and how the inclusion of personal stories in political communication affects the persuasiveness of that communication. I am also involved in several projects investigating the use of deliberative public engagement to address health policy and bioethical questions. Previously, I was a Robert Wood Johnson Scholar in Health Policy Research at the University of Michigan, and I completed my doctoral degree at Princeton University in 2011.
