Welcome to my website!

My research examines economic drivers of political behavior, with a focus on extraction of private gain from politics and public office (e.g., corruption, regulatory capture, and award of contracts to firms with political connections). I also conduct research in quantitative methods, where I am particularly interested in the reliability and validity of measurement strategies. My research has been published in the American Political Science Review and British Journal of Political Science, among other outlets.

I received my Ph.D. from Yale University (2022) and B.A. from UC Berkeley (2012), and previously worked as a Data Scientist at TrueCar, Inc. and as an economic consultant at Compass Lexecon.
