I am an Associate Professor (as of July 2018) at the political science department at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research interests fall under the broad category of political economy of development, 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, economic development 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.
