I am a Ph.D. student in American politics. My research focuses on how behavior among political elites is shaped by parties and other partisan institutions, as well as subnational politics.

Before coming to Yale, I graduated in 2016 with a dual BA/MA in Political Science from Boston University and worked for two years as a research assistant at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
