I am a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in the Department of Political Science at The University of Chicago.
My research interests include American presidency, executive-legislative relations, communications, distributive politics, public opinion, machine learning and text analysis, and causal inference. My dissertation studies American inter-branch messaging. Drawing upon a rich collection of press releases, social media postings, and floor speeches, I use text as data to investigate how members of Congress publicly respond to presidential appeals.
I earned a B.A. and an M.A. from the Department of International Relations at Tsinghua University.
