I am a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in political science at Northwestern University and a GenForward Research Fellow at the University of Chicago. My research explores how the politics of law and public policy shape social inequalities in the United States, with a focus on racial inequality, civil rights, and social welfare policy. You can find my CV and information about my research, teaching, service, and writing on this website.
I have previously been Doctoral Fellow at the American Bar Foundation and an APSA Public Scholar. At Northwestern, I have been affiliated with the Chicago Democracy Project, the Center for Civic Engagement (as a Graduate Advisor), Chicago Field Studies (as an instructor), the Institute for Policy Research (as a Graduate Research Assistant), and the Comparative Historical Social Sciences workshop (as co-coordinator).
