I am a postdoc in the Machine Intelligence group at Sandia National Laboratories.

I hold a PhD (2021) and master's degree (2019) in communication from Ohio State University. I also studied at the University of Missouri, where I graduated with honors in Communication (2012).

My research interests encompass many areas of political communication, including social networks, the dissemination and processing of political information, and communication technology. I use computational methods including network and automated content analyses to investigate the rich tapestry of social behavior.

In addition to this work, I have conducted research which includes game theoretic network experiments and psychophysiological measures. I am a member of the Communication and Cognitive Systems Lab at OSU.
