Bio/Description

I am an Assistant Professor of Politics and Public Affairs at Princeton University, and I primarily study money and business influence in American politics. One dominant theme in my research is that stakeholders (e.g., employees, shareholders, and consumers) play a key role in the formation and the efficacy of corporate political strategy. In addition, I have examined the political implications of technological innovation in online campaign fundraising platforms, the impact of real estate and cable news markets on campaign donors' and voters' support for the Tea Party movement, and how information from mandatory disclosures may serve as a governance mechanism to mitigate adverse selection in the campaign fundraising marketplace.

My peer-reviewed research has been published or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review and the Journal of Politics. My work has received the Jack Walker Award from the Political Organizations and Parties section of the American Political Science Association and the Evan Ringquist Award from the Midwest Political Science Association. I am a co-founder of the American Political Science Association Pre-conference on Frontiers in Money in Politics Research.
