Personal Statement: 

I am a PhD candidate in political science at the University of California, Berkeley affiliated with the Berkeley Interdisciplinary Migration Initiative. I conduct research in American politics with a specialization in racial and ethnic politics, American political development, and political behavior.

My current research agenda investigates how government policies influence minority coalition formation in the U.S., with a focus on community organizing. My dissertation examines how policies shaped intra- and inter-racial coalition formation during the U.S. civil rights movement in historical and comparative perspectives. My research employs a combination of qualitative, quantitative, and computational methods to undertake historical research on marginalized groups in a data-intensive way.

I've taught computational social science at the graduate level as a lead instructor. I am passionate about making computational methods training accessible.
