My research focuses on the politics of dictatorship, in particular the role of political parties and party systems in authoritarian governance and regime transitions.  Prior to pursuing a PhD in Comparative Politics, I worked as a Foreign Service Officer with the U.S. Department of State, where I specialized in Iran and Afghanistan, and legislative aide on Capitol Hill.
