Professor of Government at Dartmouth College.
My research addresses issues of immigration, social policy, and decentralization, 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.
