Welcome. I am a Ph.D. Candidate in New York University's Wilf Family Department of Politics, a research associate at NYU's Public Safety Lab and a graduate affiliate of the Identities & Ideologies Project. Before graduate school, I received a BA in Economics from NYU Abu Dhabi and conducted research in the Politics department there.

My research interests lie in American Politics, Political Economy, and Criminal Justice Politics. I study how political institutions shape racial inequities in the administration of criminal justice and electoral representation, with two overarching goals:

  1. offering a theoretically rigorous, empirically grounded account of disparities in criminal justice and

  2. evaluating the quality, and tracing the consequences, of racial fairness in electoral representation.

In my dissertation, I examine the influence of electoral incentives on the decisions of elected prosecutors and judges and link these incentives to racial disparities in the criminal justice system. My work has been published or is forthcoming at the Journal of Politics, the Journal of Legal Studies, Political Analysis, and other journals.
