I am pursuing the study of how policymaking institutions process information in a world in which information is sometimes scarce but more often than not overabundant, and the biggest issue is how complex information streams are prioritized. I continue working with the US Policy Agendas Project datasets as well as the Comparative Policy Agendas Projects.
