About Me


I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Public Administration and Public Policy in the Department of Political Science at Auburn University. My research focuses on the role of the third sector in international development, specifically looking at the institutional and contextual factors that impact development outcomes in the Global South. My research interests include collaborative governance, global finance, social enterprises, and economic development. 

I previously worked with nonprofit organizations, collaborating with other international development organizations to implement development projects and programs in Africa. I am currently a Kirchner Food Fellow at the Kirchner Impact Foundation where I am actively evaluating and making impact investment decisions for social enterprises aimed at fighting food insecurity in Central America.
