Currently I’m a PhD Candidate in Political Science and a Graduate Affiliate of the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics at Washington University in St. Louis. I broadly study questions of legitimacy, accountability, and responsiveness related to political economy, religion and politics, and judicial politics.

Specifically, my dissertation explores how religious groups like the Catholic Church use their public rhetoric and bureaucratic resources to influence politics by conceptualizing them as international interest or advocacy groups.

This site mainly includes info about my research and teaching. Feel free to contact me with any comments or questions!
