I am a graduate student in political science at the University of Rochester, and hold a B.A. in mathematics and political science from Swarthmore College. I spent last academic year, 2015-2016, as a visiting instructor at Georgetown University.

My research explores the connections between inequality, representation, and institutions in American politics. Using novel datasets compiled from Twitter, the Congressional staffing, and four decades of legislative activity in the House of Representatives, I examine how members of Congress allocate their time and money based on the socioeconomic characteristics of their districts.

My teaching covers a broad range, from data analysis and game theory to American Politics and International Relations and more. No matter the subject, each class I teach explores how to think critically and appreciate government.
