I am an assistant professor and Himan Brown Faculty Fellow 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 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. My work has also received generous funding from Society for the Humanities, the Institute for Social Sciences, and the Einaudi Center for European Studies.

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).
