Ph.D. Student, Stanford University
I am a first 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. I graduated from St. Olaf College before serving as a Predoctoral Research Fellow at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR).
In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, hiking (conquered Austrian peak on the left), and playing the French Horn. I consider myself an expert unicycler and woodfired pizza chef.
I am also an avid craftsman, woodworker, and wood turner. A few past products from my shop are pictured below.
