I am a PhD student studying American Politics. More specifically, my interest is in the dimensionality of politics, and the role of race, social identities, and group attachments on political behavior. Prior to coming to UCLA, I served in the Peace Corps both in Botswana and domestically in Oregon.


B.S. in Economics (with Distinction), Purdue University (2019)
