I am a Quantitative Policy Analysis Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Politics at Oberlin College. In May 2017, I graduated with a Ph.D. in Government and Social Policy from Harvard University, a joint program between the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and the Kennedy School of Government. My research focuses on how political behavior can both create, but also help address social problems through public policy. Prior to Harvard, I graduated from the University of Virginia as an Echols Scholar with a B.A. in Government and Environment Thought & Practice.
