About

I am a Quantitative Researcher at Fors Marsh Group, where I generate data-driven insights for government clients. I am also a Principal Investigator on the CoronaNet Research Project (and formerly Chief Data Scientist), where I have redesigned the data pipeline process, generated activity and quality metrics, and produced statistical research.

In my academic career, I studied corruption in authoritarian contexts as a Havighurst Fellow at Miami University’s Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies and Department of Global and Intercultural Studies. I earned my Ph.D. from Indiana University’s Department of Political Science.
