Welcome to my website!

I am an assistant professor in the Department of Political Science at Columbia University. Previously, I was an assistant professor in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University. I received my Ph.D. from the Economics Department of Northwestern University in 2012. For the 
2015-2016 academic year, I was a W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University.

My research is at the intersection of economics and political science. I study how electoral and legislative institutions affect policy-making, 
as well as the accountability and selection of representatives.

I am a co-organizer of the Washington PECO, a DC area conference in political economy.
