Hi! I am a Research Scientist in the Demography and Survey Sciences (DSS) group at Facebook, where I work on causal inference issues with survey data. 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 Congressional redistricting, electoral politics, and political targeting. My research is forthcoming in the American Political Science Review.

From September 2015 through November 2016, I was on leave from graduate school working as a data scientist in the Analytics team at Hillary for America. From August 2017 through November 2017, I was a Research Intern with DSS at Facebook, where I worked on bias correction for surveys and experimental design. I have also consulted for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on their 2018 remedial redistricting.

Prior to graduate school, I was a researcher at the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C, where I vetted major party donors and surrogates. You can find my publications and working papers on my research page, and my Github page can be viewed here. Most importantly, my dog's Instagram page can be found here.
