About Me

I am an assistant professor at the department of political science and public affairs at Seton Hall University. My research interests include democratization, comparative and international political economy, authoritarian institutions, and economic history. My methodological interests span game theory and mechanism design, quantitative methods, and interactive data visualization. I am also interested in research transparency and reproducibility. I received my Ph.D. in political science from Rutgers University in 2014, with extensive graduate coursework in economics. Prior to Seton Hall, I was a visiting assistant professor at Brown University.
