About Me

I am a doctoral candidate at the University of Michigan, currently pursuing a PhD in political science, concentrating on international political economy—in particular, public opinion and national security issues in international trade. I earned a master's degree in political science at Michigan in April 2021.

I recently finished my undergraduate career at University of California, Riverside in Riverside, California. I graduated cum laude with my bachelor's degree in political science, with a minor in statistics.

I am currently working on a survey experiment to determine Americans' level of concern about issues relating to dependence on international trade. I am also working on a project with Robert Franzese, Diogo Ferrari, and others about the role of economic decline in the rise of extreme nationalist populism. I also teach world politics at the University of Michigan.

I am also particularly passionate about student advocacy. I'm pleased to put my talents to work for the students by serving on U-M's Central Student Government (CSG), providing services (like campus-wide The Wall Street Journal subscription) and advocacy to the administration about important issues to students. I am currently in my second term as the Student Organization Committee Director, in charge of all student organization operations within CSG.
