I am a PhD candidate in the Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University advised by Dokyun Lee, George Chen, and Michael D. Smith. I will join the University of Wisconsin-Madison as an Assistant Professor of Operations and Information Management in August, 2021.

I design randomized experiments and quasi-experimental studies to quantify the persuasive power of mental shortcuts in text-based communication, and how language and rhetoric can be used to moderate this power. I also develop data-mining techniques for networks, and statistical frameworks for causal inference with text.
