I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Politics, where I study international relations, international and comparative constitutional law, and qualitative methods. Broadly, my research focuses on the design and function of international organizations. My dissertation explores how legacies of democratic transitions and transgressions shape a regional international organization's toolkit for democracy enforcement, and questions when and how these organizations can effectively defend democracy in their member states post-accession. At Princeton, I am also a Graduate Associate in the Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) and the European Union Program, and am a Center for International Security Studies (CISS) Fellow for the 2018-2019 academic year.
I earned my M.A. in Politics from Princeton University (2016), and a B.A., magna cum laude, with honors in both Political Science and English from Temple University in Philadelphia (2014).
