Welcome! I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Davis. I study state and local politics, public opinion, and political behavior, with a focus on the intersection of policing and politics. My dissertation is a comprehensive experimental investigation into how officer-involved shootings affect the political behaviors and opinions of the public.
I am also a Graduate Student Researcher in the Social and Political Interacting Networks (SPINS) group at UC Davis, funded by the National Science Foundation and the Minerva Initiative of the Department of Defense. We study the effects of shocks on network formation through a combination of networked human subject experiments and agent-based model simulations.
