Welcome! I am a Ph.D. student at the Pennsylvania State University. I am pursuing a dual-title Ph.D. in Political Science and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. My major field of study is comparative politics. I received my B.A. in Political Science from Skidmore College in 2020. My primary research interest is on women’s participation in formal politics. My research focuses on the policies that political institutions implement to improve gender equity and the impact that these policies have on women’s ability to provide substantive representation.
