I am an Assistant Professor of public administration and management at the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Washington Seattle. I am also a Research Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Women and Public Policy Program (WAPPP). 

My research lies at the intersection of public management and administration, personnel management, and social equity. Broadly, I apply research that investigates organizational equity performance.
