about me

I am a fourth-year graduate student (ABD) in the Political Science PhD program at Northwestern University. My core interest is in scholarship and teaching that uncover and address the political causes and consequences of social inequalities. 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 information about my researchteaching, service, and writing on this website.

I am currently a Graduate Affiliate at the Chicago Democracy Project, a Graduate Fellow in Legal Studies, and a Graduate Fellow in the Brady Program in Ethics and Civic Life. I have previously been an instructor at Chicago Field Studies, a Graduate Research Assistant at the Institute for Policy Research, coordinator of the Comparative Historical Social Sciences workshop, a board member of the Graduate Leadership and Advocacy Council, and co-chair of the Political Science Graduate Students Association.

Outside of my professional pursuits, I am an avid fan of movies, basketball, biking, and the city of Chicago. You can follow my pursuits on Twitter, or contact me via email.
