I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Communication at American University in Washington D.C., see my faculty page. My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of political communication and digital media studies, with a focus on methodology. I am the author of a digital research tool called Web Historian, and I write about trace data methodology, and political information consumption in the digital media era. I teach courses in research methods and an introduction to media studies.

For my research publications see my Google Scholar profile or my ORCID page. For pre-registrations, see my Open Science Foundation profile.
