Hello! I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Democratic Politics at the University of Glasgow working on the ERC-funded project Democracy Under Threat: How Education Can Save It (DEMED), which is led by Dr. Anja Neundorf. More generally in my research, I engage in the comparative analysis of institutions to examine policymaking interactions—with a current focus on party systems—and their consequences for the performance, consolidation, and erosion of democracy. I am particularly interested in studying distributive politics to understand the sources of political biases and inequality.
I hold a BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE), an MA in Statistics, and an MA/PhD in Political Science—all from the University of Michigan.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my research. Thank you!
