I am currently a researcher in the Visiting Scholar Program at NYU's Jordan Center for the Advanced Study of Russia.
I graduated with my Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University in June 2018. I specialize in the comparative politics of health and healthcare. My dissertation focused on institutional change in the healthcare systems of the former Soviet states.
I graduated magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame in 2011 with a B.A. in Russian Language and Literature and Political Science, earning honors in Political Science. (Go Irish!) I am a member of the Phi Beta Kappa and Pi Sigma Alpha Honor Societies.
I grew up in Montana and will always consider myself a Montanan, no matter where I live. My love of running, cycling, skiing, and kayaking were born in that great Big Sky Country, and I continue to visit the state regularly to see my wonderful family.
