I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at the University of New Mexico, where I study comparative politics and methodology.
I am interested in feminist development, inequality, and an intersectional approach to political economy. My dissertation focuses on the connections between land and property rights and women's empowerment, analyzing the conditions under which ownership influences women's decision-making ability, bodily autonomy, and experiences of violence.
I am also an active member of several research teams using an intersectional lens and diverse methodological approaches to address inequality and social problems. One, with Camila Alvarez, Clare Evans, and Kerry Ard, uses an innovative method, eco-intersectional multilevel (EIM) modeling to tackle environmental justice concerns. Another, with Bailey Gerrits, interrogates discourses of backlash directed at women leaders using feminist critical discourse analysis.
