Welcome to my homepage. Starting in July 2017, I will be a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Government at the University of Essex. I received my Ph.D. from the University of Rochester. I am a member of the AidData Research Consortium.

My research interests include international political institutions, foreign aid, civil war, and spatial econometrics. My work examines the conditions under which donors coordinate the provision of foreign aid, how volatility of aid flows affects political stability in recipient countries, and coalition dynamics in civil war.
