About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in political science at Northwestern University and a Doctoral Fellow at the American Bar Foundation. My research agenda explores the relationship between the policy process and racial and gender inequalities, with a particular focus on civil rights, social policy, and immigration policy in the United States. You can find my CV and information about my researchteaching, service, and writing on this website.

My research has been published in Studies in American Political Development and Political Research Quarterly. I am a Graduate Affiliate at the Chicago Democracy Project, a Graduate Fellow in Legal Studies, and a Graduate Advisor to the Center for Civic Engagement. I have previously been an APSA Public Scholar, an instructor for Chicago Field Studies, a Graduate Research Assistant at the Institute for Policy Research, and the coordinator of the Comparative Historical Social Sciences workshop.
