I design custom quantitative solutions to help organizations measure, prioritize and forecast complex risks. In my current role at Google Trust & Safety, I use social science research methods to build, scale, and manage company-wide content risk governance programs. I’ve previously designed quantitative and mixed-method research projects that delivered actionable risk insights to non-profits, governments, and critical infrastructure organizations. 

I have managed over ten different teams of researchers and my independent and collaborative work has been published in eight unique academic and policy journals. My research focuses on the global governance and political economy of emerging technologies, with methodological focuses on large-N statistical analysis, survey experiments, and social network methods. I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley (2022), and my B.A. (2016) and M.A. (2017) in Political Science from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  

I serve as an editorial board member for Business and Politics, an associated researcher for the Berkeley APEC Study Center (BASC), a strategic advisor for Maiden Labs, and as a research mentor with Polygence. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, writing poetry, and hiking. I live in Simi Valley, CA, with my partner, Kate, and two cats, Ophelia & Raisin.
