I am a New Jersey native who primarily studies public opinion on foreign policy. This includes popular support for wars, coercion, international interventions, trade, and sanctions. I tend to take a political psychology approach, both at the level of mass publics and of influential elites who often serve as domestic constituencies for heads of state. My ultimate long-term research goal is to build and maintain publicly accessible predictive models of international phenomena, for the purposes of meaningful and transparent theory-testing, but also for correcting public misconceptions about, for example, the chance of a given war or of a given coercive policy proving successful.
