Welcome! I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Program on US-Japan Relations at Harvard University. I completed my Ph.D. in political science at Washington University in St. Louis in 2019. My research primarily focuses on political institution design, in particular how different types of institutions, such as electoral systems and minority inclusive institutions, shape the process and quality of representation.
