I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at Texas A&M University. Starting in Fall 2022, I will be an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Georgia State University. My substantive research focuses on political representation, especially as it relates to gender and race. Methodologically, I am interested in research design, quantitative methods, and experiments.

I previously studied at The Pennsylvania State University, where I received an M.A. in Political Science. I completed my undergraduate work at Knox College with a major in Political Science and a minor in Economics. I have also lived and conducted field work in Tirana, Albania.
