Political Behavior, Applied Statistics


Welcome! I’m a PhD student in political science at the University of Chicago, where I’m jointly enrolled in the MS program in statistics. I study political behavior and applied research methodology. My current substantive projects examine the politics of government assistance in two areas: the green transition and international collaboration of small firms, both in the context of the United States. My methodological work focuses on data-adaptive experimental design and the use of dynamic difference-in-differences regressions in political science.
