I'm a fourth-year graduate student in the Harvard Government Department studying Congress and legislatures. I am especially interested in understanding how electoral and legislative institutions affect the way in which legislators represent their constituents and strategically interact with each other. 

My work is also strongly influenced by my previous professional experience. Before graduate school, I worked in Washington D.C. for almost eight years as a political and policy advisor for two U.S. Senators, and as an appointee in the Executive Branch.

Before my career in Washington and coming to Harvard, I attended Cornell University where I majored in Industrial Labor Relations with a concentration in Economics.
