Graduate Student


Second year PhD student in Government and Politics at the University of Maryland. Subfields are American Politics and Methodology. Currently developing projects on second generation immigrant political behavior. From Jacksonville, Florida, growing up in diverse environments sparked my interest in race and identity at an early age. In my free time I am often enjoying a TV show, exercising, or reading.
