I am a Ph.D. candidate in Comparative Politics at Princeton University. For the 2014-2015 academic year, I will be a graduate fellow at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies.

I study comparative political behavior in advanced and transitioning democracies, with additional expertise in East Asia. My research is committed to uncovering the non-obvious and sometimes contradictory roles that identity plays in democratic governance. I am also interested in research methods, particularly survey measurement and integrating experimental logic into multimethod strategies to identify the causal effects of identity.

Before Princeton, I earned my B.A. from Stanford University and M.P.P. from Harvard University.
