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. My work is currently supported by the Princeton University Fellowship of Woodrow Wilson Scholars and the Center for International Security Studies (CISS) (AY 2018-19). At Princeton, I am also a Graduate Associate in the Program in Law and Public Affairs (LAPA) and the European Union Program.
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).
