I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at Texas A&M University. My substantive research focuses on politics and gender, especially as it relates to political representation. 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.
