I'm a Ph.D. candidate in political theory in the Department of Government. My research interests are in democratic theory, theories of authority and sovereignty, moral philosophy and the philosophy of science. My dissertation examines the role of experts in democratic societies, with a focus on issues that involve the translation and use of science in political decisions. My work has been supported by the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics, where I held the Eugene P. Beard graduate fellowship. I have served as a teaching fellow for classes in political theory, ethics, the history of political thought, and comparative politics at Harvard. I hold a BA in Ethics, Politics and Economics from Yale University.

In the fall, I will join St John's College, Oxford University as a Supernumerary Fellow in Politics.
