I'm an Associate Professor of Political Science at Yale University. I'm a political theorist interested in democratic theory, Enlightenment thinkers, political epistemology, constitutional theory, and the philosophy of social sciences. My book Democratic Reason (Princeton University Press 2013) was awarded the 2015 David and Elaine Spitz Prize for best book in liberal and/or democratic theory published two years earlier. I am currently writing a new book, where I argue that some of the contemporary problems faced by democracies come from the elitist and closed off nature of our representative institutions and suggest ways of opening them up to the preferences and insights of ordinary citizens. I call this new institutional paradigm "open democracy."
