Personal Statement: 

My research interests are in Bureaucratic Politics, Race and Ethnic Politics, and American Political Development.  My dissertation project uses formal models to examine the development of expertise in local law enforcement agencies, and its role in the perpetuation of racially disparate policing.  I have been lucky enough to receive support from the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program and the Berkeley Empirical Legal Studies Graduate Fellowship. 

Before coming to Berkeley I worked as a Legislative Aide to Representative Daniel Kagan, the Chair of Colorado's House Judiciary Committee.  My major legislative projects included increasing access to counsel for indigent juveniles and measures to prevent minors from obtaining retail marijuana.  I earned a BA in Philosophy and Religion from Truman State University and a second BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from the University of Oxford where I studied as a Rhodes Scholar.
