Welcome! I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Comparative Politics at Department of Politics, Languages, & International Studies at the University of Bath. Before joining Bath, I was a College Fellow in the Department of Government at Harvard University and a Research Fellow in the Women and Public Policy Program (WAPPP) at the Harvard Kennedy School. I have a PhD in Political Science from Harvard University, an MSc in Comparative Politics (Europe) from the LSE, and an AB in Government from Dartmouth College.
My research interests include gender and politics, political representation, and political parties, with a regional concentration in Western Europe. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in Comparative Political Studies, European Political Science Review, Political Research Quarterly, and Politics & Gender.
My recent article, "Why Are Gender Quota Laws Adopted by Men? The Role of Inter- and Intraparty Competition", is the recipient of the 2018 Pi Sigma Alpha / Franklin L. Burdette Prize for the best paper presented at the previous year’s meeting of the American Political Science Association, and the 2018 Sage Award for the best paper developing or applying qualitative methods presented at the previous year's meeting from the APSA Qualitative and Multi-Method Research section. You can read a short article about the research from Maclean's here.
