I am a PhD student in Princeton University's Department of Politics. I research immigrants' political participation to better understand the ways they participate and how they conceptualize political participation. My senior thesis, "Creative Citizenship: Immigrant Political Participation," won the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMass) Honors Dean's Award. In other work, I have studied Americans' understandings of democracy, legislative coalitions, and electoral redistrictiong. Additionally, I am interested in multi-method research and my training ranges from quantitative methods to qualitative methods and network analysis. I have presented my solo-authored and co-authored research at the American Political Science Association, Midwest Political Science Association, Political Networks Conference, Northeastern Political Science Association, Southern Political Science Association, and New England Political Science Association. In addition to my research, I am a graduate student coordinator of the Princeton Research in Experimental Social Sciences.
Before coming to Princeton,I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a BA in Political Science in 2017. While at UMass Amherst, I also earned a Letter of Specialization in Data Analytics for Politics and Policy, and a Certificate in International Relations.
