I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at the University of Kansas (incoming Fall 2022). My research interests include political behavior, party competition, representation, and political institutions.
In my dissertation, entitled “Challenging Corruption: Electoral Accountability for Corruption in Latin America”, I investigated 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.
Prior to joining the University of Kansas, I was a visiting assistant professor at Reed College (2019-2020) and a visiting research scholar at the German Institute for Global and Area Studies, GIGA, (2017-2018). I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Pittsburgh in 2019.
