I am an Associate Professor at the political science department at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research interests fall under the broad category of applied political economy, with a regional focus on Sub-Saharan Africa and Israel-Palestine. In my work, I use a host of causal inference tools as well as text and social network analysis to address substantive questions regarding political behavior, political accountability, public service delivery  and conflict processes.

Before coming to Penn I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University and a Research Fellow at the Center for the Study of Development Strategies at Columbia University.
