Welcome to my academic website! I am a doctoral student in Political Science with a focus on Judicial and Comparative Politics at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I am a member of the Experimental Politics Lab led by Professor Kraft.
My research interests broadly focus on judicial independence, the U.S. and State Supreme Courts, national security law, judicial process, and ethnic fractionalization. More specifically, I have focused on how political institutions such as an independent judiciary impact political stability in a country. I have regional interests in the former Soviet Union and the Middle East.
Prior to my doctoral studies I received a Masters Degree in Political Science from the School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs at the University of Central Florida. In 2017, I graduated cum laude with honors with a B.A. in Political Science (Middle Eastern Studies Minor) from the University of Central Florida. I also gradated cum laude with a B.A. in History from the College of Arts & Humanities at the University of Central Florida in 2017.
