About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in political science at George Washington University. In my current research, I seek to better understand how elite framing influences public perceptions of immigrants and ethnic minorities in Europe and the United States, with a particular focus on how discourse animates emotions such as anxiety and anger. I also study electoral reform in the United States, with a focus on the adoption of ranked-choice voting. My research is methodologically eclectic, as I employ tools ranging from quantitative text analysis of social media content and survey experiments to process tracing and comparative case studies.
