Current Research

We all make mistakes. But do we all pay the same price for our mistakes? Research suggests women and minorities are hurt more by the same mistakes than others. In addition to the pay gap, there is a punishment gap as well. My research explores whether female and minority candidates are hurt more by scandals in politics. 


I graduated first in my class at Dartmouth, an Ivy League University in the United States, as both class valedictorian (highest cumulative GPA) and a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Academic Honors Society. I also earned numerous academic awards including citations in American Politics and Quantitative Political Analysis. In 2017, I was a Peter Martin Fellow and Editorial Writer at the Financial Times in London.
