I am a Lecturer in Political Science at the United States Studies Centre, at the University of Sydney. I teach and research public opinion and voter behaviour. I have also provided polling and statistical consulting for national political campaigns.


My work focuses primarily on using novel data to study the issue preferences and political behaviour of voters and other political actors in Australia, the United States, and other countries.


I have authored articles for and been interviewed by a range of media outlets internationally and in Australia, from the Washington Post and the BBC, to The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and the ABC.
