Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website.

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles. I am supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. My research examines mass and elite political behavior in the United States, and has been published in Political Behavior.

I received a B.A. in Political Science from American University in 2016. I can be reached at bhamel (at) ucla (dot) edu.
