Hello! I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Democratic Politics at the University of Glasgow. I work on the ERC-funded project "Democracy Under Threat: How Education Can Save It (DEMED)," which is led by Dr. Anja Neundorf.

More generally, my research revolves around the comparative analysis of institutions to examine policymaking interactions—with a current focus on party systems—and their consequences for the performance, consolidation, and erosion of democracy. I am particularly interested in studying distributive politics to understand the sources of political biases and inequality, and why certain countries fail to provide adequate levels of basic services to their citizens.

I hold a BA in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, an MA in Political Science and Statistics, and a PhD in Political Science—all from the University of Michigan.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my research. Thank you!
