Personal Statement: 

I am a PhD student in the Political Science department at the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests include civil discourse, public opinion, and voting behavior in the United States. Specifically, I am interested in how individual policy preferences are formed, and the factors that impact the extent to which legislators reflect the policy preferences of their constituents. I received my Bachelor of Arts from Bowdoin College, where I studied Philosophy and Government & Legal Studies.
