After a steady northbound trajectory---I grew up in San Diego County, moved to LA for rock 'n' roll (and college), and became hella NorCal at Berkeley---I moved South in 2016. After a post-doctoral fellowship at Vanderbilt, I made it to the beautiful Florida Panhandle in 2017, where I worked as an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Florida State University until 2022.
In addition to research, I enjoy food (both cooking and eating!), hiking, snowboarding, following NBA basketball, listening to records, and winning at pub quiz. I am also an unabashed cat lover.
