My research focuses generally on political economy in American politics with research projects in several areas. One of these projects focuses on accountability and federalism in the context of the U.S. disaster relief. A second area, which comes from my dissertation, develops both formal theory and an empirical analysis to examine the market origins of media bias.

While I continue to do research in these areas, I am also currently working on several other research projects that engage questions of issue selection in campaigns and confidence in political knowledge. More details of my current and published research may be found on my research page.
