I'm an associate professor of political science at the University of Notre whose research focuses on understanding how groups can mobilize supporters.

Studying mobilization sheds light on important topics such as voter psychology, the dynamics of elections, and the nature of interactions between elites and the masses.

Since I use field experiments to study these questions, experimental design is an important part of my research agenda. While my work has primarily focused on voter turnout in the United States, the logic of the inquiry can be applied to other behaviors and settings (e.g., volunteering, donations, campaign activities in other countries).
