Occasionally, I get quoted:
I'm also currently on the job market.
In June 2017 I defended my PhD in political science at Columbia University in New York, advised by John Huber. As an ABD, I also served as a visiting student then predoc at LSE, in the same group.
My research interests center on historical political economy, comparative institutions and multi-level governance, public policy, and European politics. I tend to combine quantitative methods, historical micro-level time series 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.
Prior to beginning graduate studies, I was the Research Manager for Harvard Kennedy School's Evidence for Policy Design (EPod). I also hold a M.A. and M.Phil. in Political Science from Columbia, and an A.B. in Political Science from the University of Chicago.
