She has translated her research for non-expert audiences including political candidates and consultants, journalists, and regular readers of The New York Times. She is the co-author of the forthcoming “Identity Crisis: The 2016 Presidential Campaign and the Battle for the Meaning of America” and the 2012 award-winning campaign book, “The Gamble”, which was described by Nate Silver as the “definitive account” of the 2012 election.

Carnegie Fellowship, an annual prize given in support of research on challenges to democracy. She has served on the advisory boards of the American and British National Election Studies and is a past chair of the American Political Science Association’s Experimental Research Section.
