I am Thomas S. Foley Distinguished Professor of Government and Public Policy and Associate Professor in the school of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs at Washington State University where I teach courses in American Politics, Elections, Media and Politics, Research Methods and Statistics. I am also co-director of the Wesleyan Media Project, which has tracked all political ads aired in the United States during the 2010 and 2012 election seasons.

My broad areas of research interest include political communication, voting, elections and campaigns, political participation, presidential nominations and survey methodology.
