About Me

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Government and Social Policy at Harvard University, a joint program between the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and the Kennedy School of Government. My dissertation 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.
