I am an Associate Professor of Political Science at Yale University. My research and teaching focus on comparative politics, political economy, and formal political theory.

I have authored and co-authored articles on the politics of authoritarian regimes and democratization in leading political science journals, including the American Political Science Review, the American Journal of Political Science, and the Journal of Politics. My book The Politics of Authoritarian Rule (Cambridge University Press, 2012) received the best book award from the Comparative Democratization Section of the American Political Science Association. My latest research includes projects on electoral fraud, patronage politics, the political economy of identity, and a new book Democratization in the Age of Elections.
