I'm a 2019-2020 APSA Congressional Fellow and an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Western Washington University. My research explores political representation at the intersection of gender, race, and partisanship.

My current book project, Gendering the GOP: Intraparty Politics and Republican Women's Representation in Congressfocuses on the House Republican Conference and contributes to discussions of Republican women’s descriptive and substantive underrepresentation in Congress. In it, I examine the ways Republican congresswomen claim to represent women and how they navigate intraparty gender dynamics in an era of heightened polarization.
