I am a political scientist and my research areas are American political development, political economy, race, and labor politics. I completed my Ph.D. in political science at the University of Pennsylvania. For the 2021-2022 academic year, I worked with Senator Ron Wyden and the Senate Finance Committee as part of the APSA Congressional Fellowship Program. Prior to starting my doctoral program at Penn, I worked in health policy and nonprofit governance in Washington D.C. for five years. I earned my B.A. in Politics & Government from the University of Puget Sound.
