About Me


Broadly, my research focuses on American politics, political economy, and political behavior. My work uses experimental economic games, public opinion data, and formal theory to examine how psychological motivations, such as compassion and fairness, influence political attitudes and behavior. In particular, I am interested in how our experiences with income inequality impact our preferences toward redistribution. I also study how motivations like compassion and fairness influence our decisions about redistribution and social insurance. Additional research interests include racial prejudice, cooperation and punishment, and the provision of public goods.

I am currently a Ph.D. candidate at Stony Brook University. I began at Stony Brook in Fall 2019, after graduating from Roger Williams University with a double major in Political Science and Economics.
