Welcome!

I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Wellesley College.

My research and teaching interests are in the fields of American political behavior, racial and ethnic politics, religion and politics, and social policy and inequality. My current research focuses on the role of social contexts in shaping individual political behavior.  You can learn more about my ongoing projects here.

Prior to joining Wellesley College, I completed my Ph.D. in Government and Social Policy at Harvard University in 2013 and received my B.A. in History from Stanford University in 2005.
