  • About

    I am a PhD candidate studying American political institutions. My research interests are in inter-institutional politics, and political geography.  I am currently involved in research on inter-branch politics and federalism, as well as analyzing the political and geographic biases in legislative districting plans. Similarly, my dissertation focuses on how the geographic distribution of political opinion affects representation in the United States.
