Welcome to my website. I’m an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science and International Relations at the University of Southern California. I hold a Ph.D. in political science from Washington University in St. Louis (2020).
My research focus on inequalities in political representation and the behavior of political elites in established democracies, with a focus on causal inference. I am also interested in questions on women and politics, policy diffusion, and attitude formation. Previous work has been published or is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, Journal of Experimental Political Science, and Electoral Studies, among others.
My research has been funded by APSA’s Centennial Center for Political Science and Public Affairs, the Foundation for Science and Technology, the Center for International Studies, and the Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation.
