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.
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.
