Curriculum vitae

I joined the Department of Political Science as a postdoctoral researcher in the Political Methodology Chair in August of 2021. I received my BA in international relations at Tufts University and an MA in European affairs at Sciences Po Paris before receiving my PhD in political science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2021.

My research lies at the intersection of public opinion, social identity, and voting behavior. I have two main research streams. The first is about the structural determinants and electoral consequences of “other-oriented” attitudes towards redistribution—namely, how people feel about the deservingness of those the welfare state helps. The second focuses on the relationship between macro-social change and voting behavior and the subjective underpinnings of social cleavages. My current survey project analyzes variation in subjective class boundaries, as a way of better understanding changing patterns of class voting.
