I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia. I received my PhD in Political Science at the University of Notre Dame where I was also a Garza PhD Fellow of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. My research interests include survey/experimental methods, public opinion formation, and political campaigns.
My main line of research sheds light on the influence of political campaigns on voting behavior. I study the influence of negative (and hostile) partisanship on voters' electoral behavior as well as motivated reasoning during political campaigns. I also participate in collaborative research projects aiming to understanding why voters support corrupt politicians in Latin America, vote-buying in Mexico, and scientific opinion on climate change.
