Welcome

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Political Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I study comparative politics and political methodology.

Substantively, I am interested in political economy and political behavior in developing countries, with a focus on how information shapes electoral accountability and voting. Methodologically, I use tools from design-based inference and machine learning to improve causal inference in experiments and observational studies.

I am on the job market during the 2020-2021 academic year. Feel free to contact me to learn more about my work.
