I am a political scientist (Ph.D., Georgetown University, 2017) with expertise in parties, elections, and alternative voting rules. I have taught courses in American, comparative, and urban politics. My work is published in American Politics Research, the National Municipal Review, Democracy & Society, The Monkey Cage blog, and LSE's American Politics & Policy blog.
My dissertation explained the rise and fall of proportional voting rules in America, known today as multi-winner ranked-choice voting. There were 24 cases in the 20th century, in cities as diverse as Cleveland and New York. Read more about that project here.
This year, I am a Research Fellow at the Democracy Fund. I support the Elections Program and its grantees with quantitative research on the voting experience.
