I am currently the Michael W. Traugott Collegiate Professor of Communication and Media & Political Science, and Research Professor in the Center for Political Studies at the Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan. In summer 2021 I will be moving to the Department of Communication at the University of California, Los Angeles. Most of my research focuses on political communication, the sources and/or structure of public preferences for policy, and the relationships between public policy, public opinion, and mass media. This site includes links to some of my recent work, datasets, software, and recent teaching.
