Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Louisiana State University.
I study American politics with particular interests in distributive politics, public policy, elections, and political behavior. Current projects explore electoral reforms and voter turnout, policy voting in the New Deal era, inequalities in city service delivery, and the politics of local education spending.
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, red wine enthusiast, and devoted Swiftie.
