About Me

Hello! I am a Senior Data Scientist in the Legal Analytics group at the American Civil Liberties Union, where I support the ACLU’s litigation and advocacy around redistricting, voting rights, and civil rights more broadly. You can read about some of my work at the ACLU here.

I received my PhD from the Department of Politics at Princeton University after defending my dissertation in November 2018, where I studied statistical and social science methodology with applications in legislative redistricting, electoral politics, and political targeting. My research has been published in the American Political Science Review, the Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics, and Statistics and Public Policy, and my contributions to statistical software have been recognized by the Society for Political Methodology.

From December 2018 through May 2020, I was a research scientist with the Demography and Survey Science group at Facebook, where I worked on causal inference issues with survey data. From September 2015 through November 2016, I was a data scientist in the Analytics team at Hillary for America, while on leave from graduate school. I have consulted for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on their 2018 remedial redistricting, and I am an affiliated researcher at the Institute for Quantitative Social Science at Harvard University, where I am also a member of the ALARM (Algorithm-Assisted Redistricting Methodology) Project. Prior to graduate school, I was a researcher at the Democratic National Committee.
