I am a Professor of Politics, as well as a co-director of the NYU Center for Social Media and Politics (CSMaP). I am also the Director of the Politics Data Center. Along with research on the impact of social media on voter behavior and attitudes, I co-authored a book on voter turnout in the United States from 1972-2008 (Who Votes Now? Demographics, Issues, Inequality, and Turnout in the United States , Princeton University Press, 2014).
I am working on projects on the impact of economics on elections, and on the impact of social media on political participation. The CSMaP website describes our work. Check it out if you are interested.
