J.D., Ph.D.

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

I received my Ph.D. from UCSD in 2017, my law degree in 2012 from the University of San Francisco School of Law and my Bachelor's degree in 2009 from UCLA. As a postdoctoral fellow at Uppsala University on the  CONPOL project, my research focused on civic skills, participation, and integration.
