Welcome to my website. I’m an Assistant Professor in European Politics at the London School of Economics. I hold a Ph.D. in political science from Washington University in St. Louis (2020).
My research focuses on inequalities in political representation and the behavior of political elites in established democracies, with a focus on causal inference. I am also interested in questions on women and politics, corruption, policy diffusion, and attitude formation. Previous work has been published in the American Journal of Political Science, American Political Science Review, Journal of Politics, British Journal of Political Science, and Comparative Political Studies, among others.
My research has been funded by APSA’s Centennial Center for Political Science and Public Affairs, the Foundation for Science and Technology, the Center for International Studies, and the Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation.
