I am an Assistant Professor in the Political Science department at Texas A&M University. 

I analyze formal theories of political institutions and behavior, particularly how electoral incentives generate, and affect coordination upon, relevant information about candidates and policy. I analyze the robustness of these institutions to the patterns noted in the empirical political behavior literature, connecting the study of behavior with that of formal theory and political economy. I also work at the intersection of formal and normative political theory, using these models to push forward our understanding of the normative consequences of specific institutional arrangements. My work has been published or is forthcoming in journals such as the American Journal of Political Science, the Journal of Politics, and the International Review of Law and Economics.

I have a Ph.D. in Economics from Boston University, and a B.A. in Government and Economics from Colby College. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the European Centre for Advanced Research in Economics and Statistics (ECARES) at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB).
