I received my Ph.D. in the Department of Politics at NYU in 2017. Before graduate school, I worked for the United Nations and NGOs in Switzerland, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Ecuador, as well as contributing to journalistic outlets. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton. Next year I'll be starting as an Assistant Professor at Emory.
Some things I'm involved with now:
- Field projects in South Africa, Colombia, Myanmar, Philippines and Afghanistan
- NEWEPS (Northeastern Workshop in Empirical Political Science)
- The Monkey Cage (@ the Washington Post)
