Hi there! I am an Upper School History Teacher at Kent Denver School. I received my PhD in Political Science at Northwestern University. My fields of study are American politics and political communication. While I am no longer primarily a researcher, my research to date and forthcoming centers media effects, political incivility, and Black politics. More generally, my research focuses on the ways in which ordinary Americans are affected by the media they consume, and how social norms within different groups interact with political outcomes. But, nowadays, my focus is primarily on teaching. This year, I’ll be teaching 9th grade Global History and 11th grade US History.
You can see more details about my research on the research page of this website. My CV can also be accessed on this website; I regularly update this document to reflect my most recent work.
