Welcome! My name is Hannah and I’m a Ph.D. candidate in American politics at the University of Notre Dame. I work primarily on U.S. state politics and political methodology, with special interests in legislative policymaking and network inference. My broader research agenda concerns elite behavior, representation, and methods for dependent data – including models of diffusion, multilevel networks, and visualization. I am originally from Indianapolis, Indiana and graduated with honors from Indiana University Bloomington in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and French.
While at Notre Dame, I’ve presented my work at conferences around the U.S. and internationally. I most recently taught an independent course on American state politics during the spring 2020 semester. I’ve also led a variety of introductory classes on American politics, Comparative politics, and International relations and previously served as the teaching assistant for the graduate-level quantitative methods sequences in the Department of Political Science and Keough School of Global Affairs. You can find my published research in the peer-reviewed journal Political Analysis.
