Hi! I’m a sophomore from New Jersey concentrating in History with a secondary in Economics. I’m especially interested in themes of resistance and conformity throughout history. Outside of class, I work as a research assistant at Harvard Kennedy School’s Nonviolent Action lab where I analyze dissent, collective action, and police response data from the US and abroad. I also intern at the Hamilton Partnership for Paterson and participate in programs at the Institute of Politics. In my free time, I enjoy visiting art museums and listening to podcasts. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions about the History Department!
