I'm an Associate Professor of Government at Dartmouth College, where I am also affiliated with the Program in Quantitative Social Science.

My research focuses on immigration and social policy within developed democracies. In particular, my work examines (1) how policies affect immigrant integration, (2) how immigrants interact with the welfare state, and (3) political responses towards immigrant settlement. Although my primary regional focus is on Europe, I also assess refugee resettlement policies and outcomes within other destinations, such as Canada and the United States.
