Welcome! I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Southern California. I am also a graduate student in the Master of Science in Applied Economics and Econometrics (MS AEE). I have a strong quantitative background in data analytics, survey data, text analysis, designing and implementing field and survey experiments, A/B testing, vector autoregressions (VAR) and multilevel-regression analysis with postratification frames (MRP).
My research focuses on corporate political strategy, the behavior of political elites, affective polarization, and attitude formation. My dissertation looks at corporate activism to identify its determinants, as well as its consequences on the behavioral attitudes of social and political stakeholders.
Prior to my doctoral education, I worked as a public affairs and strategic communications consultant and analyst for international private firms and non-profit clients.
