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 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 researchteaching, service, and writing on this website.

My research has been published in Studies in American Political Development, Political Research Quarterly, and the Journal of Race, Ethnicity, and Politics.

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).
