My work deals with the interface between the history of political thought, democracy, and public opinion. I investigate how political actors have theorized and framed the power of the people from the age of revolution to the present in shifting media landscapes.   

I'm currently completing my first book manuscript, The People's Two Powers: Public Opinion and Popular Sovereignty, as well as a research project on the history of liberalism. I'm also starting to lay the groundwork for a second book project, Propaganda and Democracy: A History.

In September 2022, I joined King’s College London as a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow. Previously, I taught at Brown and Yale. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in journals such as The Journal of Politics, Political Studies, and Modern Intellectual History.
