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 legislative and state-level politics with a secondary focus on methodology, particularly networks. My broader research agenda concerns political networks, institutional mediators on elite behavior, and modeling dependent data – for example, behavioral diffusion, multilevel networks, and visualization. I am originally from Indianapolis, Indiana and graduated with honors from Indiana University Bloomington (IU) in 2016 with a B.A. in Political Science and French.

While at Notre Dame, I’ve presented my work at conferences around the U.S. and internationally. Most recently, I taught an independent course on American state politics during spring 2020. 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.
