I am a Ph.D. candidate in Government and Social Policy at Harvard University, a doctoral fellow in the Harvard Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality and Social Policy, and an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science.
My research and teaching interests are in the fields of American political behavior, racial and ethnic politics, urban politics and policy, and social policy and inequality. My current research focuses on the role of social contexts in shaping individual political behavior and political representation. You can learn more about my ongoing projects here.
I hold an A.M. in Government from Harvard University and earned a B.A. in History from Stanford University in 2005. Prior to entering graduate school, I taught high school history and civics courses at California Education Plan: School for Independent Learners.
