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.

Some things I'm involved with now:

  • Field projects in Peru, Myanmar, South Africa, and Afghanistan.
  • NEWEPS (Northeastern Workshop in Empirical Political Science)
  • The Monkey Cage (@ the Washington Post)
