I am the Director of Policy Research for the Movement Advancement Project (MAP), an independent think tank that provides rigorous research, insight, and analysis to help speed equality for all, including LGBTQ people. Among other duties, I maintain our Equality Maps tracking over 50 LGBTQ-related policies across all 50 states, D.C., and the U.S. territories. I create accessible, persuasive, data-driven policy resources, and I advise on these and other issues. Learn more about MAP here!

I also served two years at the Harvard Opinion Research Program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. I designed surveys and analyzed public opinion on a variety of health and domestic policy issues. I wrote policy reports and worked with the media and funding partners to communicate our research to broad and diverse audiences.

I earned my Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Michigan in 2016. Go Blue! My research focused on political psychology, particularly emotions and LGBTQ politics.
