I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Politics at Princeton University, affiliated with both the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics and the Program in Law and Public Affairs. My research focuses on accountability and responsiveness of political institutions, particularly the bureaucracy. More generally, I am interested in how government institutions develop the capacity and expertise to address societal needs.
Beginning May 2013, I will be a research scholar at the Rutgers University Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, focusing on workforce and economic development policy.
