I am a Data Scientist at Nationwide and visiting scholar in the Department of Political Science at The Ohio State University. I earned my Ph.D. at OSU, focusing on political methodology and comparative politics. Prior to being at OSU, I earned an M.A. in political science from Boston College and my B.A. in economics and German studies from Lewis & Clark College.

In my methods research, I focus on models for network analysis, particularly latent space models and advanced exponential random graph models, as well as the computational aspects of estimating these models. I have also done research on causal inference in the context of natural experiments (instrumental variables and regression discontinuity designs). In my applied research, I have extensive experience using multi-level and mixed effects models, event history, and time-series methods.
