About me: I am an assistant professor of political science at the University of Oklahoma. While at OU, I co-founded the Community Engagement + Experiments Laboratory(CEEL), and now serve as one of its faculty advisory board members. CEEL conducts Oklahoma City's Election Day Exit Poll for presidential and midterm elections. For more information about CEEL, check out its website here: ou.edu/ceel. My areas of specialization include American public opinion, political psychology, immigration, race and politics, and religion and politics. I also have expertise as a survey methodologist in the areas of survey and experimental design, and enjoy topics related to science and technology, as well as any and all attitudes and behaviors based on myths (i.e., non-evidence based beliefs and/or attitudes). In addition to maintaining an active research agenda, I also teach a variety of undergraduate and Ph.D. level courses, all relating to American political behavior. For fun, I often lend my support to organizations seeking to increase civic engagement as well as physical and mental health in local communities around the U.S., and sometimes serve as an expert witness for the scientific validation of questionnaires.
