I am Assistant Professor of Political Science at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy.
My research agenda spans comparative politics and political economy, and my work has appeared among others in the Journal of Public Economics, Electoral Studies, the American Political Science Review, and the American Journal of Political Science. I received my Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University. My Erdős Number is 5.
Before coming to Bocconi, I taught methodology, political science, and political economy at the LSE for three years and at the Hertie School of Governance for another three. I was a pre-doctoral fellow at the Alexander Hamilton Center for Political Economy at NYU, where I taught courses on political and bureaucratic corruption. I am also a member of the Advisory Council of the Ibrahim Index of African Governance.
