I currenly work as a policy analyst at IAC where I conduct research and lobby on behalf of the counties interests to the State Legislature. Academically, my substantive research interests are concentrated around representation in legislative and judicial settings, and gender and minority politics. Methodolgically I am interested in linear and non-linear models, dimensional analysis and measurement theory. To view my working projects click here.
