About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Political Science at Duke University. I am also an associate member of Nuffield College, University of Oxford, and of CAGE, University of Warwick.
My research lies at the intersection of political economy and political behavior. I study political preferences and choices in advanced industrialized societies, specifically individuals' preferences for redistribution and redistributive voting. I am interested in how these are shaped by social structure and institutions, but also by basic individual characteristics, such as cognitive and non-cognitive skills.

Methodologically, I am interested in applied Bayesian modeling, Bayesian Nonparametrics, hierarchical/multilevel models, measurement and discrete choice models. I am particularly interested in applying these models to problems of comparative/cross-cultural research and to panel data.

I teach a variety of courses and workshops related to hierarchical modeling, missing data models, and Bayesian analysis.
