I am an associate professor of political science at Stony Brook University. My research interests include behavioral political economy, evolution of cooperation, social dilemmas, electoral politics, and climate change mitigation/adaptation. Methodologically, I rely on computational modeling, game theory, laboratory experiments, survey research, and statistical methods.

I am currently teaching the following courses: World Politics (undergraduate), Politics of Climate Change (undergraduate), Cooperation (graduate), and Computational Modeling (graduate). I am also teaching Math Camp for incoming graduate students.
