Welcome! I am Ph.D. Candidate in Political Science at Washington University in St. Louis. My work has been published in Electoral Studies, Party Politics, and Political Research Quarterly.
I study topics related to electoral systems, gender representation, and political campaigns. In my dissertation, I analyze whether co-partisans are biased against their female colleague on the campaign trail and how it affects women's representation.
Candidates provide financial resources and endorsements to colleagues. I analyze whether they discriminate against women.
When can gender quotas be effective in majoritarian systems? We show that the gender quota in France depends on presidential coattails to work.
