I'm a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University. Starting in July 2016, I will be an Assistant Professor of Government at Dartmouth College.
My current research addresses issues of decentralization and immigration, with a regional focus on Europe. In my dissertation and book project, I investigate the consequences of devolving control over redistributive policy to local governments. Other work appears in the American Political Science Review and Electoral Studies.
I received my PhD in Political Science from MIT in September 2015. Before graduate school, I attended Cornell University and worked at the hedge fund D.E. Shaw & Co.
