Currently, I’m a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Institute for Quantitative Theory and Methods at Emory University. I received my PhD in Political Science from Washington University in St. Louis, where I was also a Graduate Affiliate of the John C. Danforth Center on Religion and Politics. I broadly study questions of legitimacy, accountability, and responsiveness related to political economy, empirical legal studies, as well as religion and 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!
