I’m a PhD Candidate at the University of Texas at Austin, Department of Government. My interests include public opinion, public policy, elections, and methodology. I’m currently working on several research projects. My dissertation focuses on the impact of partisanship on the opinion-policy link. I’m also interested in whether (and how) income inequalities affect representation of public opinion in policy outputs. You can find some of my working papers here.

Last week I taught a quick workshop on R. It includes the basics of working in “package-less” R: data types, loops, the “apply” family, etc. PDF slides and html content for easy copy/paste are available here.
I taught an Intro to Data Analysis and Reporting with R course at the University of Gothenburg over the last couple days. Slides ad a more copy/paste friendly html page are available here.
