Political Scientist Postdoctoral Scholar in Health Policy and Management, University of California, Los Angeles

I completed my PhD in Political Science at Columbia University with emphases in American Politics and Quantitative Methodology. I have conducted research on American policy implementation, and the ways that Congress, courts, and agencies interact to shape law and policy over time. I conduct additional research on healthcare policy and the public health consequences of issues tied to the Affordable Care Act and changes to abortion access. My research has been published in the American Journal of Political Science and the Journal of Law, Economics & Organization, in addition to which I blog on the politics surrounding the election and healthcare policy.

I have taught courses on American politics, public policy, public law, and research methods at Washington University in St. Louis, Yale University, Columbia University, and Tufts University. I currently am a Postdoctoral Scholar in Health Policy and Management at the Fielding School of Public Health, where I conduct research on health insurance, health equity, and women's health law and policy.
