Jacob is a sophomore at the College and is planning to double major in Government and Environmental Science and Policy. This is his first year in the S.N.a.P.P. lab, and he is excited to be a part of the Political Rhetoric team. He will be working with the STAIR lab to develop a new way of measuring political ideology. Specifically, he will be working with the team to analyze the text of speeches and documents written by politicians or political groups in order to identify their position on the ideological spectrum. Outside the lab, Jacob is a member of the Undergraduate Honor Council and William & Mary Young Democrats.
