I am a postdoctoral associate at the Cowles Foundation at Yale University. I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics from Northwestern University in 2016. I am an applied formal theorist with substantive interests in political institutions and political economy. The topics of my recent projects include the indirect accountability of political appointees, the link between affective polarization of the electorate and elite behavior, and the extent of policy experimentation under federalism. Please see my CV and research pages for more detail.
