About Me

Hello. I am an Associate Professor of Government at Harvard University. I am also an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science.

I study political methodology, with a focus on dynamic causal inference, instrumental variables, experimental design, missing data, and panel data. My substantive interests include the lasting effects of slavery on political attitudes in the US South.

I teach several courses on political methodology. You might be interested in my lecture notes on causal inference, on graduate linear modeling, or on undergraduate applied data analysis.
