Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Loyola University Chicago, beginning Fall 2021. My research interests lie in political communication, political behavior, public opinion, and Chinese politics. My current projects examine when and how persuasive communications influence the behaviors and attitudes of both domestic and foreign citizens. I received Ph.D. in Political Science at the University of Texas at Austin in May 2021.
