CV & Bio

Click here to access my CV.

I currently work as a Research Specialist at the Center for Healthcare Delivery Sciences at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, with a joint appointment to the Office of Evaluation Sciences at the General Services Administration.

Prior to this role, I worked as College Fellow at Harvard University and as a public policy researcher at IMPAQ International.

I hold a Ph.D. (Harvard University, 2013) in political science, with a focus on political psychology and public opinion. My area of specialization is the psychology of income inequality.

I also hold an M.Phil in European Politics from Oxford University, and a B.A. in Social and Political Sciences from Cambridge University.

I was born in Estonia, grew up in Sweden, attended college in England and went to graduate school in New England. I will gladly talk about democracy, public opinion, and the overlap of political science and psychology. If you don’t want to talk politics or science with me, you can bring up rock climbing or cooking… but be warned that I can turn most conversations back to social science pretty fast.

Oh, and if you want to find out how I feel about sharing my surname with Donald Trump, you can find the answer in this Vox story.
