I'm an Assistant Professor of Government at Dartmouth College.

My research addresses issues of decentralization, social policy, and immigration, with a regional focus on Europe. In my book project, which received the APSA Gabriel A. Almond Award for best dissertation in comparative politics, I investigate the consequences of devolving control over redistributive policy to local governments. Other ongoing work focuses on refugee policy and immigrant integration.

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.
