About Me

I am a PhD candidate at Princeton University in the fields of comparative politics, empirical methods, and international relations with a joint degree in Social Policy from the Woodrow Wilson School of International Affairs. I study transitional justice policies and how they shape political behavior and reconciliation in post-violence settings.

I am currently a US Institute of Peace Jennings Randolph Peace Scholar. My work has also been funded by the Mamdouha S. Bobst Center for Peace and Justice, the Program in Latin American Studies, the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, and Princeton Research in Experimental Social Sciences.

At Princeton, I am a student coordinator of Princeton Women in Political Science (PWIPS), a student consultant for Princeton Research in Experimental Social Sciences (PRESS) , and a graduate student affiliate at Empirical Studies of Conflict (ESOC).

Before Princeton, I received a BA in International Relations from the College of William and Mary and worked as a management consultant in Washington, D.C. at Booz Allen Hamilton.
