I completed my joint Ph.D. in Public Policy and Political Science at the University of Michigan in August 2022. I am currently Research Manager at the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at MIT. I am also a fellow at the Governance and Local Development Institute at the University of Gothenburg. 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. I received an M.A. in Law and Diplomacy at the Fletcher School at Tufts University and a B.S. in Foreign Service (International Politics) at Georgetown University and previously worked on electoral reform projects for The Asia Foundation in Timor-Leste and the National Democratic Institute in Cambodia.
