About Me

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at Penn State University. My subfields are American politics and methodology, with a focus on information processing in political behavior. I have a B.A. in Political Science and History from SUNY Purchase.

My current projects are:

  • Examining the effect of emotions and morality on political information processing
  • Exploring the psychological differences between ideological extremists and moderates
  • Research design in political science research using social media data

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments at jup87@psu.edu. I am always open to collaboration on new and existing projects.
