I am an assistant professor in the Government department at Cornell University.
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. My recent work has been published in the Journal of Politics, and is forthcoming at World Politics.
I hold a PhD from Columbia University in New York, and an A.B. in Political Science from the University of Chicago. I was formerly a postdoc in the Government Department of the London School of Economics (LSE), in the political economy group (PSPE). Prior to beginning graduate studies, I was the Research Manager for Harvard Kennedy School's Evidence for Policy Design (EPod).
