Hello there!

I’m a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of California, Davis with subfields in methods and American politics.

I employ causally oriented machine learning methods to study American political institutions and public policy. My dissertation research focuses on Congressional oversight and policymaking capacity, as well as inter-branch politics. I’m also interested in the development and application of new methods, as well as accompanying software tools, for difficult social science problems. I have several projects in-progress in this vein with co-authors.

Before graduate school, I was an economic policy research analyst at the Bipartisan Policy Center. At BPC, I contributed to research on the federal budgetdebt limitSocial Security and Medicare financing, and defense personnel reform.
