about me

I'm an assistant professor at the department of political science and public affairs at Seton Hall University. My current work examines how the institutional variation across authoritarian regimes affects international conflict, leader survival, regime stability, and economic outcomes. I have interests in democratisation, democratic backsliding, and economic history as well. My methodological interests span game theory, mechanism design, quantitative methods, text analysis, and data visualisation. I am also interested in open science, research transparency, reproducibility, and all things R and Stan.

I received my Ph.D. in political science from Rutgers University, with extensive graduate coursework in economics. I have undergraduate degrees in physiology and neuroscience (B.S.) and Latin American studies (B.A.) from the University of California, San Diego. Prior to Seton Hall, I taught at Brown and Rutgers.
