I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen (2019–). Previously, I was a post-doc at New York University's Social Media and Political Participation (SMaPP) Lab (2017–19), and I completed my PhD in political science at the University of Toronto (2018). My research lies at the intersection of political behavior, public opinion, social media, and statistical methodology.

I am also a partner at Vox Pop Labs—a civic technology and public opinion research firm. We work with media organizations (e.g. Wall Street Journal, Sky News UK, CBC, ABC) to provide civic engagement applications to promote political and social science literacy. We are best known for Vote Compass, an application used by millions of voters in recent elections.
