About

I am a third-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science at Emory University. I study the intersection of organized crime and politics. My research interests include the interactions between criminal actors, criminal governance, and the impacts of crime on local politics. In my research, I combine causal inference and formal modeling with Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning.

Prior to joining Emory University, I received my B.A. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina Asheville in 2020, where I won the 2020 Big South Christenberry Award and was nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year as a member of the swim team.
