Racial and Ethnic Politics
Computational Social Science
I am a PhD candidate in political science at the University of California, Berkeley.
My research investigates how funding shapes community organizing among ethnoracial minorities in the United States using a mix of qualitative, quantitative, and computational methods. My dissertation examines how the expansion of US federal grants market in the 1960s and 1970s fostered Asian American and Latino community organizing in historical, comparative, and transnational perspectives. My other projects analyze the causes and consequences of identity politics with evidence from surveys, experiments, and computational text analysis.
I've taught computational social science at the graduate level as a lead instructor. I am passionate about making computational methods training accessible.
