Hello! I am a PhD candidate in political science at Yale University. I study the politics of inequality, redistribution, and the climate crisis in the contemporary U.S. My dissertation focuses on the politics of taxation and redistribution within the Democratic Party. I highlight the shift of affluent voters from the Republican to Democratic coalitions and empirically evaluate the impacts of this epochal shift on Democratic voter preferences and policy agendas of contemporary Democratic elites. My research has been published in Perspectives on Politics and State Politics and Policy Quarterly. I am currently based in Los Angeles, CA.
