I am an associate professor of political science at Northwestern
University and faculty fellow at the Institute for Policy Research. My
main fields of interest are the politics of Eastern Europe, the quality
of democracy, the causes and consequences of formal institutions, and
social policy reforms. I also write about popular culture in Eastern
Europe and getting a better education.
This site contains copies of most of my article-length writings and translations, information about my books, syllabi for classes, and some personal information about me. I'm always happy to receive comments on my writings - good, bad, or ugly. Email me at email@example.com.
You can find my c.v. here.
