Welcome! Thank you for visiting my website.

I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Political Science at the University of California, Los Angeles and a Research Analyst at the Early Voting Information Center at Reed College. I am supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. I study American politics with broad interests in political parties, money in politics, and campaigns and elections. My research is forthcoming in Political Behavior.

I received a B.A. in Political Science from American University in 2016. I can be reached at bhamel (at) ucla (dot) edu.
