I am a postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Government Department of the London School of Economics (LSE), in the political economy group (PSPE). 

I'll be starting as an assistant professor in the Government department at Cornell in Fall 2018.

My research interests center on historical political economy, democratization and party systems in new democracies, multi-level governance, public policy, and European politics. I combine quantitative methods, historical data, and natural and/or quasi-experimental research designs with extensive archival research.

I organize the Historical Political Economy Working Group, and I'm also part of the research project "Bureaucrats and Group Identity in Local Politics," funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

At the LSE, I currently teach in the Masters of Public Administration (Public Policy) program, in the newly created School of Public Policy. Here, I co-teach the core course Gv478: Political Science and Public Policy and solo teach Ec408 Quantitative Methods, and contribute to the Executive MPP/MPA program. I like to teach students about historical political economy, sensational statistics, and how to deal with fake news.

Prior to beginning graduate studies, I was the Research Manager for Harvard Kennedy School's Evidence for Policy Design (EPod). I hold a PhD from Columbia University in New York, and an A.B. in Political Science from the University of Chicago.
