I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Politics at the University of Virginia.
My research centers broadly on political institutions in dictatorships and authoritarian durability, using game theory and statistical methods. In particular, I examine party building in autocratic regimes with the goal of understanding why we see variation in the institutional capacity of ruling organizations.
