Welcome to my website!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Southwestern University.  I specialize in political communication and political psychology, and my research focuses on incivility in the media, its interaction with individual psychological traits, and its influence on political behavior.  I’m also interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning, particularly assessment and community-engaged learning.
