About Me

I am a doctoral student in comparative politics at Harvard University's Government Department. I am also an affiliate of the Institute for Quantitative Social Science.

I study intergroup relations and identity politics in the developing world. In particular, I investigate the ways that host societies react to migration. I have conducted survey experimental research in Thailand, the UK, and Brazil, and am currently developing a dissertation project focused on Latin American responses to Venezuelan migration. My work has received support from the Brazil Studies Program of the David R. Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies
