I employ formal and statistical models, along with case study analysis, to investigate issues in comparative and international political economy. My ongoing projects primarily examine the dynamic coevolution of cultural traits and institutions. I use this framework to understand the abrupt collapse of religion in Quebec and some European countries, international proxy wars, the persistence or extinction of cultural traits, gun violence, and immigrant retention. Additionally, I am interested in international security, organizations, and integrating psychological insights into formal theory.

I am always willing to talk about research and social issues in general. Just send me an email!
