I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Political Science Department at Stanford University, where I research inequality in the political, economic, and social spheres. I am particularly interested in understanding politics as both a cause and consequence of the geography of economic opportunity. I received my B.A. in political science and economics from the University of Pennsylvania.
