I am a College Fellow in political science at the Government Department at Harvard University. My primary specialization is in political behavior and psychology, with relevant training in American politics, comparative politics and social psychology. In my research, I use survey experiments, laboratory experiments, and analysis of cross-national datasets to answer questions about public opinion, especially toward topics like income differences, redistribution, and perceptions of deservingness.
I earned my Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University in 2013. My dissertation, “The Status Quo and Perceptions of Fairness: How Income Inequality Influences Public Opinion”, won the Government Department’s Edward M. Chase dissertation prize. I also hold an M.Phil in European Politics from Oxford University and a B.A. in Social and Political Sciences from Cambridge University.
