Welcome! I am currently an Assistant Professor (Fixed-Term) in the Department of Political Science at Michigan State University, where I teach courses on data science and comparative politics. My dissertation focused on the rise and rule of radical-right parties in Europe. I received my Ph.D. from Michigan State in May of 2021.
My subfields of study include Comparative Politics and Quantitative Research Methodology. Broadly, I study democracy, comparative political economy and electoral institutions.
Specifically, I am interested in radical parties, populism, electoral regimes, democratic stability, economic development, inequality, and statistical modeling techniques.
