On leave FALL 2019
I am an associate professor of sociology at SUNY-Stony Brook and a former postdoctoral fellow of Harvard University. I received my Ph.D. in sociology from New York University in 2013. My current research uses an original longitudinal data set called the Longitudinal Elite Contributor Dataset (LECD) to study the donation strategies of individual campaign contributors in federal elections. My work on elite donors has been funded by the National Science Foundation and the Russell Sage Foundation.
