My work at the University of Illinois at Chicago has mainly focused on a
small-scale democratic practice known as Participatory Budgeting, which
seeks to devolve local budgetary decision-making to residents of a
particular area.

Since 2012, I have served on the PB Chicago research
committee and helped with the development of survey tools, field
interviews, and data collection. During the 2013-2014 & 2014-2015 school
years I was awarded the university's competitive Abraham Lincoln
Fellowship, which allowed me the flexibility, time, and focus to co-author
two reports and a published journal article together with Rachel Weber, of
UIC's College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs, and Thea Crum, at
UIC's Great Cities Institute. I am currently a PhD candidate furthering my
training in survey research & design while pursuing coursework on data
science and programming.
