My research interests include the application of computational social science methods to studying the politics of race & ethnicity, representation, and political behavior in the U.S. My academic work includes research on Asian American political attitudes and behavior, the role of elite rhetoric, and civic participation and political engagement. I received a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California Riverside.
My prior experience includes working as a researcher at AAPI Data, making data Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders more accessible and fielding public opinion surveys like the National Asian American Survey. In addition, I worked as a researcher for the Center for Social Innovation at UCR, where I helped coordinate outreach efforts for the Inland Empire in preparation for Census 2020 and the production of their State of the Inland Empire report series.
