Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Houston.  My main research interests are in Political Economy, Industrial Organization and Applied Econometrics.

My current research agenda focuses on the organization of political institutions, such as political parties and Congress, as well as the networks therein.  I also study statistical methods that are applicable to these problems.

I hold a Ph.D in Economics from the University of British Columbia.
