I am an academic political economist. During the 2016-17 academic year, I will be on leave as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the European Centre for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES) at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB). In the summer of 2017, I will join the Texas A&M Political Science department as an Assistant Professor. 

My work is in formal theory, with a particular interest in its applications to the analysis of political and legal institutions. I research the impact which uncertainty, and the subjective beliefs which emerge from it, has on coordination within these institutions.

I have a Ph.D. in Economics from Boston University, and a B.A. in Economics and Government from Colby College.
