My research focuses on representation in American politics. In my dissertation, I examine substantive representation through an alternative lens of political values rather than issue congruence. Some of my other research focuses on institutional effects on representation along with different approaches to measuring the concept.

Prior to my time at Harvard, I worked as an associate consultant at Bain & Company. I received my B.A. from Swarthmore College in 2016 in Political Science and Mathematics.
