I am a Leverhulme Trust fellow and an assistant professor in the School of Politics and International Relations at the University of Nottingham, where I am also a research theme director at the the Nottingham Interdisciplinary Center for Economics and Politics (NICEP) and an affiliated staff member at the Asia Research Institute (ARI). I received a Ph.D. in political science from the University of California, San Diego in 2015. I also studied at Georgetown University where I graduated with an M.A. in public policy (2007).

My research interests lie at the intersection of the political economy of institutions and public administration/policy. My research projects cover a wide array of topics, but they share a focus on quantitative and experimental methods and research design.

My research has been published or is forthcoming in Comparative Political Studies, Governance, Oxford Handbook, Regulation & Governance, and among others.
