I am a PhD candidate in the Government Department at Harvard University, where I'm also affiliated with the Institute of Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) and the Research Cluster on International Security at Weatherhead Center for International Affairs (WCFIA).
My research examines the role of security framing in the domestic politics of foreign policy. In my dissertation project, I analyze political speeches using computational tools to study who frames trade as a security issue. I also explore the effects of such security frames on foreign policy preferences. My other interests include political psychology and human rights.
Prior to beginning my graduate studies, I was a data engineer at Amazon Web Services S3 where I developed production software for processing terabytes of data in a fault-tolerant, distributed computing environment. I received my BA in Government and Computer Science from Dartmouth College in 2014.
