Ph.D. Student · Department of Political Science · Stanford University

I am a second year Ph.D. student and the E. K. Potter Stanford Graduate Fellow in Political Science at Stanford University. My research leverages causal inference and machine learning to understand how election systems can be designed to reduce polarization, enhance accountability, and restore faith in elections.
