Welcome. I am an associate professor at Georgetown University, with a joint appointment in the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service and the Government Department. I hold a PhD in political science (NYU, 2015). In 2014-2015, I was a visiting scholar at the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics, Princeton.
My research focuses on democratic accountability and the inequalities in political representation. I am especially interested in the electoral fortunes of corrupt politicians, the role of parties in democratic accountability, the causes and consequences of politicians' wealth, and the political attitudes and preferences of wealthy individuals.
At Georgetown, I teach courses on comparative politics and quantitative research methods.
