I am a PhD candidate in comparative government (comparative politics) in Georgetown University’s Department of Government (Political Science), and I am on the job market for positions beginning in the 2021-22 academic year. I grew up in Phillips in Wisconsin’s great Northwoods. After earning my Honors BA in international affairs and history from Marquette University, I taught English at Majengo Secondary School in Moshi, Tanzania, as a Jesuit Volunteer and also worked as a legal assistant and a Ballotpedia staff writer back in my hometown. Since then, I have worked as a graduate research assistant at a from American University during my international affairs MA studies and as a graduate research and teaching assistant at Georgetown University during my PhD studies.
