About me

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 the politics of law and public policy in the United States, with a focus on civil rights, racial inequality, and social welfare policy. 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, and is forthcoming in the Journal of Race, Ethnicity, and Politics. I am an affiliate at the Chicago Democracy Project and a Graduate Advisor to the Center for Civic Engagement. I have previously been a Doctoral Fellow at the American Bar Foundation, 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.
