Welcome! I am a joint Ph.D. candidate in Public Policy and Political Science at the University of Michigan. I am also an International Policy Center research scholar at the Ford School of Public Policy, a non-resident research fellow at the Ateneo School of Government in the Philippines, and a visiting research fellow at the Research Center for Politics and Government at Universitas Gadjah Mada in Indonesia. I study the effects of civil society and social accountability initiatives on the quality of democratic representation and the distribution of public goods in Southeast Asia.
