Welcome to my website, I am a Ph.D. student in Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. My fields are comparative politics, international relations, and methodology. I am interested in authoritarian governance, comparative democratization, political psychology, and Chinese politics. I received my M.A. in social sciences from the University of Chicago and B.A., summa cum laude, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I double majored in political science and psychology.
