Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Law in the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law. My research interests include racial and ethnic politics, bureaucratic politics, and the politics of criminal justice policy. I received my Ph.D. from Harvard University’s Department of Government in 2019 and my B.A. in Statistics from Harvard College in 2013. My research has appeared or is forthcoming in the American Journal of Political Science and Urban Affairs Review.

At Berkeley Law, I am an affiliate of the Center for the Study of Law and Society. At Harvard, I was a Malcolm H. Wiener Scholar in Poverty and Justice at the Harvard University Multidisciplinary Program in Inequality & Social Policy, a Dissertation Research Fellow on the Study of the American Republic at the Harvard University Center for American Political Studies, and a Dissertation Fellow in Urban Policy and Governance at the Harvard Kennedy School Taubman Center for State and Local Government. My work was supported by the Institute for Quantitative Social Science, the Harvard Kennedy School of Government Program in Criminal Justice Policy and Management, and the Foundations of Human Behavior Initiative.
