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.
When can gender quotas be effective in majoritarian systems? We show that the gender quota in France depends on presidential coattails to work.
