I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Economics at Birkbeck, University of London and a Senior Visiting Fellow at the LSE School of Public Policy. I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University.

I use formal theory and quantitative methods to study the political economy of institutions. My research focuses on political selection, intrinsic motivation and authoritarian politics.
