Welcome!

I am a Ph.D. student at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University studying political science with emphases in American politics and law and courts. I am also a visiting student at Cornell University for the 2015 fall semester. I study courts as institutions and the relationships that courts forge with the other members of the American political apparatus.

When not reading and writing, I can be found exploring the city of Syracuse or at the movies with an overpriced popcorn in hand. I enjoy the little things in life, like coloring books and making bread (in large part in order to make my home smell delightful).
