My name is Sono Shah. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Political Science at the University of California Riverside. I also work as a researcher with AAPI Data, where we make data on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders more accessible. I’m interested in race & ethnicity, political participation, and civic engagement in the U.S.

My dissertation focuses on Asian Americans and Latinos and their campaign contribution behavior where I use administrative records from the FEC as well as survey data from the National Asian American Survey.

As part of my work at AAPI Data, I also create tools to increase the accessibility of demographic data, my most recent project was to create a Community Factsheet tool using shiny, check it out here.
