J.D., Ph.D.

Welcome! I am a political scientist and attorney working on issues related to race and ethnic politics, political behavior, voting rights,  and immigration. 

I currently live in Sweden where I work as a postdoctoral fellow at Uppsala University. My research here focuses in particular on civic skills, participation, and integration. I will be joining Michigan State University as an Assistant Professor of Political Science in January 2018. 

I received my law degree in 2012 from the University of San Francisco School of Law and my Bachelor's degree in 2009 from UCLA.
