Comparative Politics
Personal Statement: 
My research examines authoritarian politics through a judicial lens. I specifically focus on how autocrats weaponize courts to repress threats to power. My research utilizes a mixed-methods approach, combining statistical modeling, structured case studies, and computational text analysis. I have conducted archival research in London, United Kingdom and fieldwork in Malawi.
I earned my B.A. in economics with honors at Vassar College, studied economics and politics at Oxford University, and completed my M.A. in political science at Berkeley. I also served as an International Education Policy intern at the U.S. Department of Education in the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) division.
