Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Louisiana State University. Beginning Fall 2023, I will be an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of North Texas.
I study American politics with particular interests in distributive politics, public policy, and elections. Current projects explore policy feedback effects in the New Deal era, inequalities in city service delivery and COVID-19 relief, the politics of local education spending, and the consequences of election reforms.
My research has been published in the Journal of Politics, Political Behavior, and Legislative Studies Quarterly, among other outlets, and covered in The New York Times.
I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from UCLA in 2021. Outside of academia, I am an amateur dodgeball player and devoted Swiftie.
