I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Public Management and Policy at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University. I received a PhD in public policy and political science from Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy in 2017.

I study how international NGOs work in authoritarian countries, and I received the 2016–2018 Emerging Scholar Dissertation Award from the International Society for Third Sector Research (ISTR). I do research in public administration and policy, nonprofit management, international relations, and comparative politics.

I teach courses on statistics and data science, data visualization, economics, and science communication.
