I am an Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at Northwestern University. My research concerns the way that conversations are organized into topics (i.e. discourse-level information structure) and how an understanding of this phenomenon provides new tools for studying things like partisanship, polarization, and propaganda via linguistic data.
I received my PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in the summer of 2018. My doctoral dissertation applies formal models of discourse structure to mass public discourses. When I'm not engaged in research and teaching, I'm consuming politics, policy and poetry, or running, climbing and training in martial arts.
