I am a Visiting Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Kansas. Previously at Reed College. My research interests include political institutions, party competition, representation, and political behavior.
In my dissertation, entitled “Challenging Corruption: Electoral Accountability for Corruption in Latin America”, I investigate the sources of political accountability for corruption and the institutional and contextual factors that influence voter responses to political elite's exposed corruption. A paper based on this dissertation won the best poster award at the 2018 Latin American Political Methodology Conference. In my research, I use a mixed-methods approach, incorporating original experimental and text data with survey and qualitative data.
My research has been supported by the Andrew Mellon Predoctoral Fellowship, the Center for International Studies at the University of Pittsburgh, the Alfredo and Luz Maria Gutierrez Fellowship, the Latin American Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh, and the German Exchange Studies Foundation (DAAD).
